Help empower girls with disabilities through robotics. Join the Fundacion Omar Dengo to help young women with mild cognitive disabilities or who are deaf or hard of hearing in Costa Rica, move forward and succeed with robotics courses. Help us improve girls' lives despite the challenges they face, and give them the opportunity to use technology to improve their logical thinking skills, creativity and collaborative work.
We need to break the bridge between girls and technology! In Costa Rica, these condition increases in young women with mild cognitive disabilities or who are deaf or hard of hearing. The training opportunities are lacking, and we have more than 10,400 young women who deserve to start their paths in science and technology.
With education, a brighter future awaits! By teaching them how to design, build and program robots, these young women will improve and develop new skills allowing them to be better prepared for the jobs of the future. With your donation, we open two learning opportunities: 40-hour courses for girls with mild cognitive disabilities or 20-hour courses for young women who are deaf or hard of hearing.
With your help, we can guide 62 girls to realize their potential to make creations with technology no matter what their disability condition may be. Let's make a difference, donate!
