Hear how important our work is directly from the students we give to. These are the testimonies they just sent:
I am sending many thanks to Computer for Joro especially towards Anna-Sophia. The laptop I received is a huge joy for me. I work on it with joy, It also helped me with remote learning."
My computer helped me during remote learning and to not fall behind with my classes, I learned how to work with the computer: to search for and watch animations for kids and to play games.
Thanks a lot.

Thank you all so much for your generous contributions! With the 3,385 dollars you all helped raise, we have already been able to secure laptops for eleven children in need, and with your support we hope to supply many more. So far the children have been from Sofia, Pernik, and Troyan.
In addition we will soon be contacting the principals of rural schools to ascertain their needs and help them accordingly. The laptops purchased have been Lenovo T450, Lenovo T460 model, Dell Latitude E7250 models installed with standard software such as Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Media Player, and Microsoft Internet Explore.
We have attached pictures of the children who received laptops below, but have blurred out their faces and used their initials to protect their privacy.
