Laptops for Camarines Sur, the Philippines
In May 2017, we will provide 10 refurbished laptops to a community in need in the Philippines. The arrival of laptops is set to help the delivery of literacy to people of Camarines Sur through the Alternative Learning System (ALS) program which aims to facilitate learning, community engagement and improve expected outcomes of citizens disadvantaged in the education system.
The free program provides learners with tailored learning modules that are flexible depending on the student. With a high percentage of out-of-school youth and adults in Camarines Sur, the ALS aims to extend its reach beyond the urban centres and provide community access to non-formal education.
2016: Samugam Foundation in Pondicherry India
The Samugam Foundation has a Melbourne connection via the Sewing the Seeds Project which raises money for marginalised women in India. We provided 10 laptops that went to a Jaly home for teenagers to be used for their schooling, and for the women’s co-op that was established as part of the Sewing the Seeds project. The purpose of the space is to set up a safe place for women to work on sustainable projects, share information and receive training.
