Touch A Life Update
In mid-January, Pam Cope and other Touch A Life staff members traveled to Ghana to distribute laptops donated by New Tech High School in Coppel, TX. The computers came from One Laptop Per Child, a non-profit organizations that believes in the power of uniting the communities through education and technology. They brought 11 computers to the Touch a Life home in Tema, Ghana. The 23 children were overwhelmed by their new gifts. Within the first hour of receiving them, they had learned to use all of the applications on the computers, had read the instruction pages, and had moved on to helping each other learn more about their new gadgets. The donations of laptops will help the children expand their education in a way they never thought possible. Their basic needs (clothing, food, shelter, and safety) have been met, and Touch A Life staff members are so excited for the opportunity to provide them with tools like the laptops to meet their educational and developmental needs. Thanks to the donations from New Tech and One Laptop Per Child. Touch A Life staffers are prepared to equip the children in their care to be the next generation of leaders and abolitionist.
