Today, our singular focus is to raise enough funds so that we can electrify the school and ship the computers. We have collected over 120 computers now ready to be shipped. However, without power in the school, the computers would not be put to good use. So we are still continuing to ask our friends, families and everybody we know to help us reach that goal.
We believe that having access to the internet and online learning resources will help the students close the gap that exists right now.
Thanks to our supporters, Zorat Elementary School is one step closer to getting electrified. We have now raised $12,000 as of April 2013. We feel blessed to have your support and we know you will take us all the way to $20,000. Give the gift of education.
If you have children of any age, you will understand how computers and the Internet has become an integral part of learning and working. We see it with our daughters, Dayna 13 and Deanna 7 everyday. Deanna now in grade two can navigate through the Internet and do her homework online. Students at Zorat are being left behind because they have no access to such resources. We would like to provide some help in getting them there. But first, they must have electrical power. We have committed to raising $20,000 to help them electrify the school. We have also found used computers loaded with free educational tools for the students.

Recently, a family donated $365.00 to Zorat.org. This is the third time this family has done it. We are so grateful for their continued support. Thank you very much. When ever we visit them around Halloween, they gave us their donation on a brown bag. They save $1/day for the year just for zorat. $1/day seems very small and easy to do but it goes a long way for our cause.
We hope there will be more people who can do the same as this family.
In three years, we have done several projects for the school. We have achieved our goal of having all students a chair and a desk, we have provided funding for uniforms for kids that are Orphaned and we have bought 570 books! Now the Tigrai government has promised us that they will electrify the school.
Our effort will now focus on finding computers loaded with free educational software that can be used by the students. We are looking at logisitics of how many and when we will begin to collect computers. We look forward to your continued support.
