Spring 2011 Fundraising Appeal for Jakmel Expresyon. Help make the computer lab a reality!Posted: May 19, 2011
The initial components of a multi-media computer lab are in three large wooden crates on a ship in the Miami Harbor today waiting for shipment to Haiti at the end of May 2011. We were excited to receive over $26,000 in in-kind donations of computer, networking and video equipment from our friends and colleagues. But we are at a crucial juncture right now. We need to get our crates from Miami to Haiti, through customs and to Jakmel. And while we have much of the hardware we need, the computers won’t be able to be utilized fully without needed software and a proper electrical system that can withstand the daily power outages in Haiti. We can make this lab happen but not without your help at this time. Please join our Spring 2011 Fundraising Appeal.
