LEVEL the PLAYING field!

LEVEL the PLAYING field is a project to empower those who need it most. Supporting two schools one in Nepal and one in China. Over the past five years Michelle Jensen - Education has been donating open sourced technology to a variety of educational organizations in Nepal, Australia and China. This next project is taking this program to the next level. 
Each school has similar problems being, electricity shortages, poor internet access and clothing for the students. Initially this small startup funding would develop a Raspberry Pi Hub in each school that is not reliant on traditional methods of power or internet. Each school will also be provided with equipment needed to make clothing for students by students using the power created for the Raspberry Pi Hub.
Each school has already received two Raspberry Pi set ups. The donations of open sourced technology has been collected. This funding will purchase material to make the clothing and electrical components to make the power set up for all Hubs. Several monitors and keyboards will also need to be purchased for both Hubs. 

Expenses
5 Monitors and Keyboards for each Hub ( 10 in total) $1500 US
1 Car battery for each Hub and shipping (2 in total) $1000 US
Material for uniforms for Nepal and shipping (380 students) $2000 US
Shipping of donated uniforms for Chinese school (10KG) $500 US
Equipment needed to install the server and power systems $2000 US
Solar Panels for the Chinese school and instalation                    $2000 US
Unexpected costs                                                                                              $500 US
Fee to go fund me                                                                                             
                                                                                                                        Total $10,000 US

A team of international volunteers will travel to both schools at their own expense to install the server and power system. This is just the start of this project and it is foreseen that the relationship will be ongoing. Eventually both schools will be set up to receive regular visits from volunteers from schools and Universities.
