Championed by Patti Garamendi (Mettu 66–68) and Faith Garamendi
This RPCV Legacy Program project has joined in the efforts of the Ethiopia-approved NGO Alumni Association of St. Gabriel School in Mettu, Ethiopia along with parents and community members to bring computer literacy and enhanced learning to the students of this primary-middle school through a project entitled “Enhancing the Quality of Education Through ICT (Information and Communications Technology) Labs at St. Gabriel Primary School.”
The long-term goals of the team are to:
- Set up, in existing space, a computer lab that will be furnished with 20 computers, appropriate furnishings, and necessary wiring.
- Provide computer literacy training to the school’s 25–30 faculty members.
- Assure that the faculty members are capable of designing curriculum and teaching students and community members using computers and the Internet in their own areas of study.
- Provide enhanced educational opportunities for the students and citizens of Mettu.
Patti and Faith’s RPCV Legacy Program project has established an initial goal to raise $10,000 for the purchase of 20 computers, and 20 desks and chairs for the workstations in the ITC Lab.
