In July 2018 we moved some electronic components from Spain to Romania. Computers, routers, digital cams and other little devices we collected from friends in Germany and Spain. The idea was to re-use the things in education of the ApEAL summer school and other activities of this NGO in Bucharest.
First of all we like to say “thank you” to the donators, like Kim and Martina and Heide. Also we are happy for support by moving the box (Jens) and picking it up in Bucharest train station (Casa Mica staff manager).
We hope that this tools are useful for further projects in the little villages around Ciocanesti (31 km from Bucharest and the hotspot of the yearly summer school.
On one side we think the world is already full of devices and e have to think carefully if another usage in education really makes sense. In case of the ApEAL projects we think yes. Some of the children there have no daily access to Internet and IT – based education. For some of them the summer school is a nice chance to practice their english.
To work time by time with electronic parts like computers motivates also to get deeper in understanding english and electronic stuff. Some of the kids startet to develop the website of the NGO ApEAL.
Therefor the message of the right foto is a motivation for all of us. We will continue to figure out projects with this private engagement to empower children in Romania.
