Huge THANK YOU to the folks at HITT for their donations to the Computer Equipment For Kids Program! The Windows laptops and surface donations will go a long way in helping students in need. Special shout out the team for erasing and reimaging all the machines!!
The Computer Equipment For Kids Program is happy to provide laptops to "The Food Project". The Food Project, addresses two key challenges in our community: food insecurity and youth unemployment. The Food Project hires local youth to produce and distribute 500+ meals each week and run a bi-weekly popup market with Baltimore City distributing over 600 food boxes to the food insecure; and it is a member of the Baltimore Children’s Cabinet Youth Food Insecurity workgroup, helping lead the charge to reduce food insecurity among Baltimore’s youth. The Food Project continues to bring cooking, farming, restaurant skills, job opportunities, sustainable food sources, mentorship & hope to the youth of South West Baltimore. Check out their website: uempowerofmd.org/the-food-project
The Computer Equipment For Kids Program is providing laptops to the Standing Strong Mentoring Program in Baltimore, MD. The Standing Strong Mentoring Program is making a difference in the community by mentoring all ages, feeding, clothing, and seek housing for our people. These computers will go to help the program with administration and members of the community which need a device.
Over the next few weeks I'll be posting about different programs the Computer Equipment For Kids Program helps. From local schools in need to programs making an impact around the world.
First program is called "Develop Africa", CEFKorg has been working with this organization for a few years now. Sending anything from kindles/ipads, laptops, to all-in-ones/computers. These devices are changing the lives of students in and around Sierra Leone. Develop Africa is a 501c3, non-profit organization founded with the aim of facilitating meaningful and sustainable development in Africa. They provide school supplies, scholarships, solar lights (so kids can study at night), mosquito nets (to keep children safe from malaria), computer/vocational training, etc. This helps them become self-sufficient and rise above the poverty line. When individuals and families are strengthened, they can contribute towards community, national, and international progress.
Last year CEFKorg was donated multiple All-In-One machines through a very generous donation (THANKS PAUL!), enough to fill a computer lab(around 20 computers). With a little elbow grease and minor repair they were ready to be shipped over to Africa! These computers now help students in a computer lab in Sierra Leonne with class study and vocation training. These all-in-ones along with all the other donations made by CEFKorg to Develop Africa has made an impact and we look forward to many more years of supporting our friends in Africa!
