First Peruvian Schools Math Competition

2020 Is a year we will never forget for reasons we all know and for the most personal reasons known only to ourselves. As most of us probably did I found myself doing different things to pass the time during lockdown, adjusting to new normals, working from home among other things. I am a certified Breathing Techniques instructor involved in education working teachers, parents and students to incorporate  healthy ways to deal with the stress we face every day, that is how I met Arturo Mendoza and Sandro Occsa. They are teachers of a school called Aduni+ in a small city in Peru called Andahuaylas in Cusco, the land of Macchu Picchu. They are forging a new generation of children engaging their teachers and parents in the educational process. Sandro is a tech savvy "cool" teacher trainings students on the online platforms used today, the power of an intelligently run social media network, audio and video and much more. Arturo is a World Champion in Mathematical Mental Calculations and regarded as the Fastest Human Being able to perform long mathematical calculations mentally. He has been featured in National Geographic's series Super Brains.
We are organizing the First Peruvian Mental Calculation Competition in schools scheduled for December 2020. Our goal is to create awareness of the impact Math and Science have in the world and to attract students if possible in the early years of school education.
We are raising money to buy 22 TABLET HUAWEI MATEPAD T8* for the winners. One for each of the winners from grades 2nd  to 12th. There are 11 competitors in two categories: Addition and Multiplication.
The price of the tablets is taking from a Peruvian Office Supply chain called Tai Loy  https://www.tailoy.com.pe/tablet-huawei-matepad-t8-45874.html
We are choosing to buy the tablets locally to save on shipping and customs duties charges and most importantly the exchange rate would work on our favor. Each tablet is about S/. 470 Peruvian Soles which translates to $ 140 US Dollars.
The Competition is Scheduled for the second friday of December. We would need the funds available to us by November 30th so we could coordinate purchasing the tablets.
We are fully aware of the extraordinary times we are living but we believe it is exactly these circumstances that will allow for extraordinary changes.
The often used phrase every cent counts, has never been truer. 
THANK YOU ALL IN ADVANCE:  Arturo, Sandro and Sabi.
