About This Project:
Youth, disabled persons, and orphans will benefit most from an education and IT skills. We learned that the children have great motivation to express their creativity. By project based learning, they will be able to develop and express this creativity, advance employment opportunities, promote positivity and have their voices heard through a sustainable way. Through collaborating with Mira, KYSD aims to begin a three-month IT literacy class, with funds going to purchasing another computer, paying for internet connection, and hiring a computer teacher. Our classes will be from Monday to Thursday every week from 9h00-11h00 and 3h00-4h00 p.m. This project will have a significant effect down the road on fighting the continually increasing rate of unemployment in our country. Since many children, especially disabled children, have no chance to access education and build their professional capacity, they would not be able to find a job and help their families. KYSD works with them to counter discrimination and hopelessness and show what their futures can hold.
