Laptop donation for the after school club at the children's home in Mostar...
Earlier this year we were contacted by Alex and Brian from HERO (Humanitarians for Education and Recreation Outreach). They asked if they could make a donation to support our work and agreed to donate laptops for use by the children at the after school club at Egipatsko Selo children's home.
We met them in October and as promised, they purchased 6 brand new laptops. They also visited the orphanage to see the after school club in action.
Computing resources like this are vital for the children's education and homework, and preparing them for employment when they leave at the age of 18. The home doesn't have equipment like this so the kids get little opportunity to use modern technology. This will be an amazing boost for them. Of course, they can use the equipment for fun stuff too - and they're already enjoying watching movies and listening to music.
Thanks Alex, Brian and everyone who supports HERO. To find out more about their project, click here: http://www.heroworldsupport.org/projects/
