Computers for Casa Shalom!
A few weeks ago, a friend from the United States told me that she wanted to help Colegio Shalom obtain some new computers for the computer lab. She had been in contact with Computers for Guatemala, an organization that provides computers to schools in impoverished and rural areas of Guatemala. She forwarded us the application for computers, we filled it out, and after some contact with the organization's director, we received news today that we will be receiving 12 new computers! Praise God! The computers are very much needed - the current computer lab is filled with very old machines, many of which don't even turn on. These new computers will allow students more one-on-one time with the machines and will allow the older students to learn more advanced programs. Thanks so much to Amy for being our link to this great organization!
