Dear donor,

At the beginning of each school year when we accept new scholarship students in their first year of secondary school (5th grade) and new students starting high school  (9th grade) , we try to give them notebook computers. Priority is given to students taking part in on-line educational seminars “Pebbles of Science” for secondary school and “Young Starfish” for high schools.

We also give laptop computers to university scholarship students so they can follow free on-line CYDD English language courses and also use them for their studies.

The notebook Hometech computers we give to 5th grade students hopefully last until they graduate from high school but we also have to have a budget for their depreciation.

We try to make purchases when we find good deals and we bought about 300 Hometech computers and 500 Lenovo laptop computers beginning of this school year. We will need to make new purchases for the second group of secondary school students to attend the Pebbles of Science seminars in the next term.

Access to digital technology has become important since the pandemic and it has become one of our major ongoing projects.

We thank you for your donations and look forward to the continuation of your support.

Kind regards,

Dear supporter,

We have started accepting new scholarship applications from secondary school and high school students who come from low income families. Most of these students will need technological support to follow the nonformal online educational courses we have started during the pandemic and will also be continuing during this school year.

This year Pebbles of Science online STEM courses for secondary school children and Young Starfish educational  program for high school girls will benefit 1250 students  and  ¼ of the students will be new comers and at least half of them will need computers and internet support.

We have already purchased 100 new notebook computers with our campaign funds to be distributed to new scholarship students . We will continue our purchases whenever new funds become available.

We  need your valuable support so we can give out more computers to new scholarship girls and have them acquire the necessary 21st century skills through the online courses.

Kind regards,

Dear donor,

We are happy to report that during the pandemic from 2020 to 2022, we handed out more than 5200 tablets, notebook and laptop computers to our scholarship students to be used for on-line formal and nonformal education programs.

In 2020 there was a shortage in the computer market due to the increased demand and we started by giving out tablets to our high school students. However, we started the 2021-2022 school year with early purchases and we distributed 2000 notebook computers to high school and 1000 laptop computers to our university scholarship students.

We hope to continue our support to the new students we will be giving scholarships during 2022-2023 school year.

We thank you for your invaluable support and look forward to your donations.

Kind regards,

Dear donor,

Students returned to school but continue to attend the CYDD on-line education programs which were developed during the pandemic.

Secondary school students attend online classes twice a week and are introduced to modern sciences with the Project “Pebblestones of Science”. Some of these young students live in small towns and remote villages. We supply them with notebook computers and also give them internet support so that all the children in a household can make use of technology taking turns.

Girls in high school also attend another online course and get acquainted with 21st century skills. We give them notebook computers and internet support when needed. Senior high school students attend special online courses to prepare them for university exams.

University students are given on-line English language courses by CYDD volunteers and some continue their mentorship program on-line.

Your contribution to our computer Project pool is as important as always.

We are grateful for your support.

Dear donor,

The new school year started with face-to-face education but during the past two years due to the pandemic, education was on-line and we too developed on-line programs for our students and supplied them with technology as much as we could.

In the recent years we had started giving scholarships to disadvantaged girls from 5th grade in secondary school so that we could support them earlier on with online educational programs. This means we now have a new population of younger students with no access to technology. 

This year we developed our two pilot projects of last year to support more students. "Pebble Stones of Science" project is for online educational support of girls from 5th to 8th grade and "Young Starfish-21st Century Skills" is for high school girls from 9th to 12th grade.

We will be accepting 500 girls from secondary school and 750 girls from high school to both of these programs this year. We had supplied notebook computers or tablets to girls following these pilot programs last year. But this year the number of students have tripled and we have to give computer and internet support to the new comers.

One notebook computer cost about 225$ and your valuable support to our computer pool is much needed. Thank you for your support.

 

Kind regards,
