Summary

We have rolled out www.nightzookeeper.com software as a language platform to connect children in Japan with children in other countries over the internet. We have started a lab in Boracay, Philippines given a tablet to a fellow NPO focused on early childhood development in Jakarta, Indonesia, set up a lab in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia as well as a refugee camp volunteer center in Samos, Greece. Our goal is to connect the children using the software.

Challenge

Children living on Boracay need more access to the internet and in the 21st century, need to be able to keep up with their peers. The introduction of both computers and WIFI will not only enhance their language skills but will also open up their ability to learn online as well as teach. We can have SKYPE lessons, send assignments via our software as well as begin collaborative classes such as robotics and coding.

Solution

The more we are able to empower the children with technology, this will improve their school work, their test scores and perspective from a global connection to the rest of the world. We aim to include the children, especially the ones who have never had access to touch a keyboard the tools necessary for children who will live to the 22nd century.

Long-Term Impact

By having access to the internet and software training, the employability of the children as they reach adulthood is much higher. As 60% of the jobs over the next 10 years have not been invented yet, the main ingredients of communication, collaboration and looking at the world more holistically still remain the path for their future.
