Devki Emukutan Primary School

Loitokitok, Kenya

Devki Emukutan is a school in a village in the middle of the Amboseli Ecosystem, extremely close to the Tanzania-Kenya border. There is no internet connection in the school and the local mobile connection is not available, which makes it difficult for the teachers and their students to communicate and learn from others. A connection to wifi and the local mobile network is of great importance and a necessity for the school. This will increase the students educational experience, as most of them have never seen or used a tablet to connect with the world. It will enable them to be computer literate, sharpen their knowledge on places around the world and share their own stories with other students.

Haiti Projects

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

We have teamed up with the Haiti Project to support 40 schools in the Haiti region that are under resourced with technology, and recently faced a bigger challenge when Hurricane Matthew tore through the island. Through its community library, Haiti Projects is able to design and implement programs for all surrounding schools in the region.Once per month, Haiti Projects takes its club house program (Club Lakay) on the road, visiting the most rural areas to work on literacy with children preschool and elementary ages. Each Club Lakay mobile program attracts as many as 60 children in these rural communities who spend Saturday mornings reading, playing games, singing and dancing. With chromebooks, Haiti Projects will be able to expand its programing, traveling to local schools to work on computer literacy skills in the region, as well as offering a variety of skills building programs at the local community library.During Hurricane Matthew, the Haiti Projects Library roof sustained major damage as a result of the hurricane. Over 800 books were lost and the faculty needed to close the library book lending for a period of a couple of months in order to raise funds to fix the roof. The Library's cyber cafe also had a hard time functioning because one of the cell phone towers sustained damage and internet from the local providers was not working well. Now, almost 4 months later, the library has a new roof but there is a major need to ramp up the internet service for their programs. Interestingly enough, teachers in the region have found that kids were flocking to the library as a safe haven after the storm, looking for programs and support as their families wrestled with home and roof damage.

The Prince and Princess Academy

Tamale, Ghana

The Prince and Princess Academy Building Project Team, united globally for the shared vision of providing an academic environment in Tamale, Ghana, that is affordable for lower-class constituents who otherwise are unable to send their children to schools due to excessive education fees. The intent of this project is to create a six-class building to educate and develop the prospective leaders of this brilliant country. The academy us currently working on the structure of the building through pipeline creation and the molding of blocks. This campaign will go directly to providing resources and equipment for this process, with 1 truck load of sea-sand and 10 bags of cement.Education is said to be the channel through which countries develop. The essence of education in this era of globalization and international development cannot be over emphasized. If education is so important in the life of a human being, then why it is that most young people in Ghana and especially Tamale-Kunyavilla in the northern region of Ghana do not have full access to quality education. Notwithstanding the fact that the constitution of the Republic of Ghana demands Government to provide “Free Compulsory Basic Education (FCUBE)”, little has been done by successive Governments to achieve this constitutional mandate. It is against this background that we thought of setting up a very low cost alternative to providing quality basic education for the deprived community called “Kunyavilla” and its environs. Kunyavilla is located in the Tamale north constituency in Ghana. Access to basic education in this area is very hard for most parents due to high school fees. Research conducted by most civil society groups indicates that the people are willing to send their youths to school but are put off by the exorbitant fees charged by the good schools in the Metropolis. The construction of this six class room block and a library will therefore be aimed at bridging this gap by providing quality education.Every contribution brings the academy closer to achieving an environment where a child is not denied his or her future due to high fees.

Butonge A.C.K Primary School

Bumgoma, Kenya

Butonge school is a mixed school located in Bungoma, Kenya. Being a rural school, the current connectivity to internet and available resources to upgrade this system is minimal. The school has an enrollment of 1,300 pupils who are in need of developing technology skills to advance their education. The teachers at Butonge are determined to give their students the best education possible and need additional resources aside from their handful of XO laptops and one teacher PC to participate in distance learning, sharing of cultural ideas and behaviors.Even with the limited resources, a few students have already been able to connect with other students around the world and have experienced global collaboration first hand. This campaign will now give them the ability to connect on a daily basis, instead of having to relay on slow internet service that consumes a large amount of time in the classroom.

Cheery Education Centre

Nairobi, Kenya

The Cheery Children Education Centre (CCEC) is located in the heart of Kibera slum in Nairobi, Kenya at Mashimoni. The founder of CCEC could not ignore the plight of vulnerable and destitute children in the slum who to some extent are neglected and abandoned thus fail to get the basic vital need Education. They are a small educational institution offering humanitarian assistance and caring for the needs of the poverty stricken children in Nairobi's Kibera slum, the largest slum in Africa by population and size. This is where these children learn to know the value of a family in which they are cared for, loved and educated until such a time they will be able to take care of themselves and their own future families in the society.Profound poverty, competition for scarce resources, disease, conflict, addictions and lack of educational opportunities put these children at extreme risk for illiteracy, illness, hopelessness, abuse and the meager resources accessible is the common definition of the urban poor child living in the Kenyan slums. Few opportunities exist for the children of Kibera and surrounding slums that allow them to learn and grow to their potential. This featured campaign provides something many of us take for granted on a daily basis, clean water. By having this covered, the administration at CCEC can focus on what they do best, teach, instead of raising donations to cover clean water delivery.

Camp Cambodia: “My Grandfather’s School Project”

Kralanh District, Cambodia

“My Grandfather’s School Project” is an education initiative based in Kralanh District, Cambodia, started by the youth travel and impact organization Camp Cambodia. In 2013, the school was closed due to lack of funds. This left 250 children without a place to get an education and be kids. Enter Camp Cambodia, who reopened the school with the help from locals in the region along with volunteers from around the world. At the moment the school employs teachers on a monthly basis, who educate the local children. However, they strive to provide English classes, as it’s a very important skill to have in such a tourist driven area. By having access to technology and equipment such as projectors, screens, computers and tablets, the teachers will be able to really improve the quality of education provided, with access to significantly more resources. Not only this, but the organizations volunteers from all over the world, will then be able to provide free interactive English classes to the children on a weekly basis from remote locations, giving them a significant advantage in their educational development. The outcomes of this simple action can be incredible!Increased access to learning resourcesImproved /more engaging teaching methodsAccess to live interactive English classes from global volunteersAccess to the Belouga network to connect and collaborate with the world As the school is in such a remote area it will make a vital positive impact. Many young adults in the area are forced to travel to neighboring countries, seeking employment, where they are often exploited while working in unsafe environments. We hope that improving education will deter this and provide a significant advantage when finding employment within Cambodia. By providing these simple tools to the school will not only have an impact in the classroom, but greatly impact the overall lifestyle of the locals in this region.

Project Naltar

Gilgit Baltistan, Pakistan

Project Naltar started as a volunteer program in 2013 with a view to improve the standard of education in Naltar, a small village in Gilgit Baltistan region of Pakistan. The village had come to limelight in 2010 when one of the local boys shot to fame by becoming the first winter Olympian for his country.In its first year, the volunteers mainly supplemented the teaching effort in the existing schools with volunteers honour university students. The project has undergone a radical change since then in its approach to achieve its goal. Currently ten full time teachers, including a fully trained Montessori teacher and one male teacher for basic religious training, and a helper have been engaged to conduct the classes. Local Health Department has been kind enough to allow the use of its two abandoned buildings. The school, which formally started off on 2nd May, 2015 stopped admissions just ten days after its opening. At 90 kids, the project ran out of space, and had to regretfully turn back new arrivals. This year, the school opened its doors for admission on 15th March, 2016 with a total of 194 students, all receiving a completely free education. With this education each child receives stationary/writing materials, books, wool socks and caps, hygiene kit and incentive gifts for regular attendance.
