We are happy to announce we are very close to delivering Keppods to students in La Paz! getting us even closer to bridging the Wall that divides less fortunate communities in Mexico.
We thank you for being part of this campaign that seeks to disrupt the global education system so that many of students in La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico can have access to a higher quality education by providing them with Keepod, a USB device with an integrated Chrome operating system that offers a portable and user-friendly personal computing experience and transforms any computer into a Chromebook.
This is our last chance to raise as much as we can to get as close as possible to our goal. If you can, please consider donating again and help us work directly towards bridging the gap of inequality that keeps Mexican children and youth from reaching their full potential.
We want to reiterate how thankful we are for your donations and encourage you to visit the project page to check how your money will be spent. Lastly, we invite you to keep on helping and spreading the word as much as you can so we can reach our goal and help change 3500 students lives and create a better future for all of us.
Every effort counts!
"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family" - Kofi Annan
The partnership between Teach For Mexico and Keepod Mexico for this project has proven to be a great opportunity to provide access to information through technology in a way that will allow the students to have a better future for themselves because of the tools they'll have at their dispossal. We believe that quality education and access to techology is key to allowing more students to access the growing economic opportunities in Mexico. We are striving for an economic system in which all children, regardless of their origin, can access any path of life they decide to take.
We are happy to report we have recently secured funds from Tech for Good, a PayPal initiative, which will allow us to be a little closer to our final goal. We are very gratefull with everyone who has donated and supported us! With your help we will be able to provide access to personal computing for thousands of students.
We are still looking for more allies to help us reach our goal and help as much students as we can. Please share our cause and if you can, please donate.
To begin with, we would like to thank you very much for getting us through the first stage and getting us even closer to bridging the Wall that divides less fortunate communities in Mexico.
So far, with your help we have raised almost 6,000 USD and are on our way to help at least 300 students.
Before we do so, we want to make sure we raise as much as possible to impact as many students lives as possible. Nevertheless, being an immediate need we have decided let the project run only until April 2019 so we can time the deployment with the upcoming school year.
Furthermore, we want to reiterate how thankful we are for your donations and encourage you to visit the project page to check how your money will be spent. Lastly, we invite you to keep on helping and spreading the word as much as you can so we can reach our goal and help change 3500 students lives and create a better future for all of us.
