Computers for Peruvian Students

The Cause:
It may be hard to believe, but kids around the world are educated without technology. Computers may be very accessible in America, but students in other countries struggle to obtain them.

The money received will go towards buying computers and printers for students under the care of the Paul Lammermeier Foundation (PLF) in Peru. Kids in PLF just started their school year and need computers to do homework, research, and access online resources. These computers will give students the opportunity to have a modern education. I would really appreciate your donation to this cause.

My Connection:
I felt called to work with PLF because I believe in giving hardworking kids the opportunity to learn and reach their full potential. Last year I had the opportunity to visit one of his homes in Lima and was inspired by Paul Lammermeier's dedication to the kids. Paul Lammermeier has helped children under his care escape the cycle of poverty and creates a constructive family atmosphere in his homes.

Throughout the past year, I have worked with the PLF teaching students English by using Skype. However, I realized that in order for these students to learn and practice English they needed better access to working computers. There was only one computer in a house. The students would also benefit from coding classes as well, knowing how to code is a valuable skill in today's society and would help them immensely in their future jobs.



The Paul Lammermeier Foundation:
"The Paul Lammermeier Foundation helps children-in-need reach their full potential by providing houses in Peru, centered on family and the Jesuit values of education and service to others."

- The Paul Lammermeier Foundation provides foster homes and education to the Peruvian youth
- PLF was created in 1995 and has a long track record of amazing contributions. You can review them at their website (link below)
- The foundation supports three foster homes in Peru: Casa Javier, Casa Ignacio, and Casa Teresa.
- They have formed a close-knit community that is great for the development of each kid.

The Paul Lammermeier Foundation is a registered 501 c3 charity in the US so all donations are tax deductible.
