Functioning WiFi and a computer lab at the New Hope Center is a win-win.
Since the Center is in such a remote location, communication by phone and internet are difficult and rarely work. Wifi has recently been introduced to the area and although expensive up front, it has immense potential for being one of our biggest sustainable assets. Not only will we be able to communicate better and connect friends and partners here with our team and kids there, we'll be able to sell WiFi usage by the hour to locals to raise funds for the Center.
We are proud of our soon-to-be graduates, Paul, Joshua, Benson and Ramsey. As you can imagine, we have many more young people in the pipeline gearing up to be like these promising young men—productive and inspiring members of their community. In our Sustainability plan, building a computer lab will broaden the Center’s ability to put our children in the best possible position. For example, they would learn how to use computers, do homework, and take online courses to learn marketable skills like coding for future employment. With a computer lab, we would also be able to raise funds with classes we would make available to others (adult computer skill classes, for example). Another source of income would be computer/WiFi use time sold as the Center would become the technology hub for the area.
There are many opportunities that will allow this part of our vision for the Center to be a success. But our deepest hope is for our children to be the best they can for themselves, and for their dreams of giving back to their community and country through hard work and innovation. We hope you’ll join them and us in this effort.
