Description: The project team is working to collect and deliver new and used computers to state care homes
for children deprived of parental care. The project aims to familiarise children and teenagers with
computer programs and functions so that the computer literacy they receive can serve them in their
future education or work.
Selected project objectives. The project aims to teach the children how to:
Search for information (e.g. addresses, jobs when they leave the state care home , etc.).
Send and receive e-mails
Work with MicroSoft Office programs (e.g. create a CV for job applications using MS Word)
Communicate with others in different cities
Participate in online computer literacy training courses for children delivered over the Internet
How Can You Help / Participate in the Project
If you have a working desktop or laptop computer (as a minimum Windows XP-compatible), color
monitor, printer or scanner you would like to donate please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each donated computer will be recorded in a donation protocol at the home, and the donation will
be published on the “Merciful” website.
The actual delivery of computers and peripherals can be done in any of the following ways:
You as a benefactor can take it to your selected care home - for us this is the easiest way :-)
Take it to the address of our volunteers who will organize the delivery
We will come and take it from your location at a mutually convenient time agreed in advance
From the start of the project we have collected and donated
27 laptop computers, 96 desktop computers and 88 monitors.
