Thanks to dear Peter Weiser our computer science room is finally sufficiently equipped with computers and monitors. Peter donated 25 computers and 17 monitors to the Education Center. Delta Cultura Germany – our newly formed association in Germany – one of their first tasks was to fund the transportation to Tarrafal.
But not only the computers and monitors have found their way to our center. Also 9 servers, a new electric motor for our carpenter machine, 96 footballs donated by Didi Constantini and some jerseys and football accessories now enrich and facilitate our work with the children and adolescents.
Finally it is again possible for us to give reasonable computer science courses. Many young people benefit from it: the children of the football school, the 30 girls from our tutoring program, they all have computer science class two times a week, taught by Suzete. Since last week she’s also busy installing windows and other Portuguese programs onto the new computers.
Suzete is funding part of her salary herself. The other part is provided by Delta Cultura through the small participation fee for computer courses, which young people pay, who do not participate in any other program of the center. These revenues are the salary of Suzete. Thus, the computers will not only provide many children with the opportunity to learn computer science but also guarantees a job.
Sincere thanks to all donors who made this possible!
