Non-Profit Kicks Off New Initiative to Send Computer Tablets, Loaded with Educational Materials & Free Wi-Fi Cards, to Indian Children Now Learning from Home
Miracle Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering orphaned and vulnerable children to reach their full potential, today announces the launch of its Keep Kids Connected education campaign. The initiative’s goal is to provide tablet computers to 300 children learning from home in India to help them continue their education during COVID-19. These tablets come pre-loaded with educational apps, online textbooks, lesson plans and Wi-Fi cards (with Internet connectivity for 3 months) so that the students are able to connect remotely with their schools and teachers and attend online classes via Zoom.
“All children have the right to a quality education,” said Caroline Boudreaux, Founder of Miracle Foundation. “Due to the COVID-19 lockdown in India, many of the kids we support cannot attend school and risk not having the necessary technology to keep up with their education online. We cannot let them fall behind. That’s why we’re asking our supporters to participate in our new campaign.”
To get involved, supporters can visit Miracle Foundation’s campaign page, where they can make a tax-deductible donation. These tablets only cost $150 but the impact it will make on these kids is immeasurable.
“During these unprecedented times, we invite you to get involved in our back-to-school campaign. Together, we can give the vulnerable children we support the ultimate gift: a quality education and a bright future,” said Pratima Kamble, Senior Coordinator-Education (West region), Miracle Foundation.
“If my mother had been educated, my life would (be) very different. However, now that I have (the) opportunity, I will study. I feel strongly that one should complete their education first and then get married. Girls need to be financially independent. As a Youth Ambassador, I stress the importance of this to others,” said Rajshree, Miracle Foundation Youth Ambassador.
