Haiti Orphanage Learning Lab!

Hello there!

I wanted to share with you all what we have been doing with the sponsored orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti!

The mission for the orphanage in Haiti (La Maison Des Petits De Diquini) is simple; not easy; but simple. We want to be a part of the lives of the children in order to help them grow up and make a life for themselves that they can be proud of and prosper!

39 kids from ages 5 months up to 17.

In recent months we have been working on an initiative to create a computer learning lab in the orphanage.

We set out to find contributions of equipment and are thrilled to share that we have 10 laptop workstations donated fully loaded with the latest software and accessories needed! In addition Image Mircosystems (Austin based company) has offered printers, and other necessary equipment to assist in the development of a technology advanced orphanage in Haiti.

With the equipment they will have access to online learning education tools that can significantly help their development in their studies. In addition, they will have access to language learning software allowing them to learn multiple languages including English.

After receiving the equipment we are faced with more cost and we NEED HELP. Below is a detailed breakdown of associated cost in order to create the appropriate infrastructure in the orphanage to support the equipment.

$705: Cost of materials/labor to build-out table/desk for the workstations

$2,424: Internet Connection WIMAX (indoor Wifi), Platium 4G (downlink 4096, Uplink 1024) Price: $202.40/month (for 10 laptops) for 12 months

$1,693: Cost of training and certification for IT networking school

$500: Portable Air Conditioner to cool room/equipment on hot days
(there is no central air or any AC @ orphanage)

$2,090: Transportation/travel cost of all equipment

ANY donation amount is accepted, anything you have to offer we will greatly appreciate!

May God Bless You and your willingness to help those in need; even you have never met these precious children!

Please share the message and help us reach our goal ASAP!
