We’ve got a new project going on in El Salvador! We recently signed an agreement with the government to open two new computer labs. These labs will be opened in two centers for orphaned, abused, and abandoned children. A year ago, thanks to generous donors, we opened a lab in the CISNA boys’ center. This center has been a huge success as the boys have the opportunity to learn a marketable job skill and interact with healthy adult role models. Due to the success of this project, the government wanted to work with us to help other kids at risk. We are excited to be working with them on this project!
One of the computer labs will be in a center for girls, and the other in a center with both boys and girls. All of these children are required to leave the centers at the age of 18. Many of them struggle to make it on their own, and many of them lack job skills. As a result, they often end up living on the streets or joining a gang. Through computer classes, they can learn skills to find a job and provide for themselves.
In order to open these centers, we need to buy 20 computer workstations. Each workstation costs $500 and includes a computer, monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, chair, and a desk (check out the picture below). Our hope is to raise the needed $10,000 over the next month so that we can get these computer classes started as soon as possible!
We need your help to open these computer labs! A donation towards a computer workstation is a tangible way that you can touch the life of a child in El Salvador. Providing these kids with a computer education, and healthy interaction with adults can make all the difference in the world for them! Please pray with us that we will receive the funding that we need, and please pray for the lives of the kids who will be touched through this project.
