Imagine Scholar is very happy to announce we've received funding for a long term home here in South Africa! Our new classroom/education center will be a tangible permanent statement of our commitment to the Nkomazi region, and the future of these amazing kids.
We couldn't be more excited about all the opportunities this classroom is going to open up for our students. Imagine connecting kids for the very first time to internet assignments, digital photography workshops, science experiments, and so much more. Now we need your help to make all this a reality. We've been incredibly fortunate to secured funding for the structure, but need help outfitting it into a fully operational education center.
Our wish list includes:
-5 computers (only 1 more needed, after some amazing early support)
-AC Unit (it’s a lot easier to learn at 70 degrees than 107 degrees)
-Mini Science Lab
-Lots of other boring stuff (chairs, shelving, file cabinet, etc)
The total amount estimated to make this a fully operational totally awesome education center is $2088. Thank you everyone for helping make the Imagine Scholar dream into a reality, we couldn’t be here without you guys!
