Computers for Dera High School

When students in Alberta, Canada heard about the needs of Dera High School they decided to take action.  Securing pledges from throughout the community, students and teachers joined in a 3 day famine.  Their goal: no food for 1 day and no technology for the other 2 days. Students in k-12 gave up their computers and teachers turned off their smartboards.  After learning more about a day in the life of a student in Dera, Ethiopia these studentst raised enough money for 10 computers and computer desks for the High School.  In Ethiopia, every child has a conviction of the power of education and they know that for their future success in the world, they need to learn how to use technology. Thanks to students in Alberta, the students in Dera will have that opportunity!
