Review for COMPUTERS FOR GUATEMALA INC, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 3 stars  

"Vida y Esperanza", "School of Life and Hope", is a christian school that helps the children of various communities in the area of Sacatepequez, Guatemala, to be able to attend a private school without having to pay full tuittion and receive high quality education. The school's computer lab used to have 10 working computers. After the school purchased the computers from your organization, the school was able to provide personalized computer classes to more than 300 students. The biggest change that I could see was that before we had three students per computer, and it was very difficult to teach them that way. Also, sometimes, one of the three would be left out as I was teaching, because of space in the desk and time wise. This year, after we purchased the computers, it was a lot easier, due to the number of computers. In my biggest class, which holds 39 students, I used to rotate them, so they would all be able to type and work in the same class period. I felt less stressed and I was able to cover more content with all the computers that we had this year.
