Project Report | Feb 8, 2012
Technology for Education Fund 2011 Round-up

By The GlobalGiving Team | Technology for Education Fund managers

Happy New Year, Technology for Education Supporters!

We hope 2012 is off to a great start for all of you. We’re writing to provide an update all the great work helped by the Technology for Education Fund in 2011. 

In 2011, the Fund continued to support three projects: CARE’s work in India and Egypt, and the Mortel Family Foundation’s work in Haiti. 

In Egypt, CARE continued to work with PCs in classrooms, providing safe spaces for girls to learn, share ideas, and socialize.  The program has increased computer literacy among its students, providing them with better skills for future studies and/or employment; it has strengthened teachers’ and other staff’s capacity to integrate technology into the school’s curriculum and instructional design; and it has created positive and active social networks for the girls participating in the program.

In Haiti, the Mortel Family Foundation was able to build a computer room for grades K-6 at Les Bons Samaritans school and the recently opened James Stine College, both in St. Marc.  These computer rooms provide internet access and interactive white boards to students who previously had little, if any, experience with technology.  The increased connectivity has helped expand their worldview and, combined with the schools’ talented teaching staff, will help prepare the students for graduate school, technical programs, or employment after graduation.

In India, Intel employees visited CARE’s work to help deploy Intel classmate PCs in various schools.  At the Udaan school, designed to help girls catch up from a gap in their schooling, Intel volunteers taught students practical skills like navigating a desktop, using a mouse, opening, saving, and formatting but always ended class with a fun activity like using the computers’ cameras.

Your continued generosity and support have made this progress possible – we can’t thank you enough!

Best wishes,
The GlobalGiving Team
