HELP CONNECT SCHOOLS November 17, 2008 To the Editor: I volunteer with World Computer Exchange (WCE) to help get more schools in Senegal connected to the Internet. My fellow WCE volunteers have been helping to plan a shipment of 200 donated used computers that will be going to connect 15 rural schools assisted by current Peace Corps Volunteers. These schools have about 6,000 students. I write to explore if you are willing to join me in financially Sponsoring part of the $5,700 needed to make this happen. So far my fellow WCE volunteers have raised $3,450 toward our goal. We still need $2,250. I hope you can help. The local WCE Partner organizations in Senegal will match your donation with funds raised from parents, schools, local government, Rotary Clubs, and interested local companies. Their match is a key ingredient in showing the priority they place on their children receiving these computers and ensuring a sense of local ownership in this donated equipment. Each dollar you donate connects one youth to the Internet. WCE is a global education and environment non-profit that keeps donated working computers out of landfills to help connect youth in developing countries to the resources, opportunities and understanding of the Internet. WCE is North America's non-profit that provides the most used computers to connect youth in developing countries.
