THE STORY:

I'm giving up using my electronics first thing in the morning to benefit our education programs. In Brasilito, we launched a new computer education program for children several months ago. We're excited about this new initiative and plan to expand the hours of instruction with our Casa Brasilito Computer Instrutor. We want children and adults in this community to have the chance to learn about and use computers, which provides them with more opportunities now and in the future.

Abriendo Mentes works with children and adults in Brasilito and Potrero. These kids do not receive a full education (average of 3 hours a day), many of their parents do not have enough for three meals a day and more than 40,000 people in Guanacaste are unemployed. They do not have a choice but to give up these things that we may take for granted: food, a decent education and employment.

To address some of these issues, Abriendo Mentes offers free education and community development activities and our volunteers are generously giving something up to raise much needed funds to help maintain this program.

You can find out more about what we offer here: www.abriendomentes.org

*Please be advised that CrowdRise will add an optional processing fee of 1% to your donation. If you do not wish to pay this, simply uncheck the box when you confirm your donation amount.
