Computer Project

From Bogdan at Orphanage #12 Kiev:
"What are you trying to do, Stacey, give me a heart attack?! I knew the computers were going to be nice but not THAT nice!!! The first one arrived today, and I could not believe my eyes. It is SOOOOO cool!!! You can only see computers like that in high-end business offices. THANK YOU STACEY!!!! We won't have to worry about upgrades for a LONG time. I did change the switch to 230V (remembered it the last minute - whooh...). The computer works fine. Great job on packaging - THANK YOU Megan and everyone else who worked on it.

Computers are needed for two purposes:

  • Get orphans adopted
    The orphanages need to generate paperwork on a computer in order to register the children for adoption at the NAC. Without this the babies and children cannot get registered and will languish in an orphanage instead (one of our orphanages has had zero adoptions this year!). Donating a computer will make more children available for adoption.

  • Educate an orphan
    The older orphans are marginalized and stigmatized in society. Any educational advantage that they can benefit from will give them a better chance in life. Donating a computer will help to educate an orphan.

    The ultimate goal is to provide computer labs, consisting of 6-8 networked computers for each of the older children's orphanages
