Casa de Maria y El Niño Project [inactive]

Note: This project is currently inactive.

ECOS organized and conducted a service project for Casa de Maria y El Niño orphanage in Medellin, Colombia, in July 2004. The objective of the project was to provide computer education for the children. This is useful to enhance the education that they receive in a public school, it is an interesting diversion, and it can motivate them to later choose a career in technology or enhance their skills in working in other areas. The project involved acquiring, transporting, and setting up four computers at Casa de Maria. We also trained the children how to use educational and fun software.
