30 computers can be provided to girls pursuing their dream of receiving an education with your generous support.
About the Project
Often unable to return home due to the dangerous road conditions, long distances and challenging terrain, many girls are forced to find temporary lodging where they must rely on themselves without any extra support.
Thankfully, the Sisters took over leadership of the Catholic Diocesan Centre in Om Koi, and now offer students accommodation and nutritious meals, allowing girls from rural communities to access education without fear for their safety. The Centre offers a bus service which takes students to and from school, however, with COVID-19 restrictions in place, schools have been shut down and students are required to attend online.
Students who wish to continue their studies in nursing can access a two-year training or three-year professional nursing course.
At the Centre, the Sisters are also trying to become more self-sustainable through growing their own food and developing agricultural skills.
This project serves to:
- Provide 30 computers for girls from remote communities who reside at the Catholic Diocesan Centre in Om Koi.
- Support girls who wish to further their study and pursue a career in nursing. Once graduated, they can assist the Salesian Sisters in supporting remote communities.
- Provide salaries for staff who work at the Centre so they can continue supporting their students.
At present, the Centre has access to very old equipment in limited numbers. Your support can help provide computers and other resources necessary for online study, allowing these young women the opportunity to continue pursuing their dreams.
