New laptops in Perú!

The government has given new laptops to the communities of Maldonado and Triunfo, where we work here in Perú. However, they’re so special that everyone was scared to open them until this week! Triunfo has been the first to take them out of the box and use them. Thanks to our amazing GVI Phoenix volunteers, we are able to provide lessons to each grade once a week.

The first lesson for each class was how to care of the computers, and of course…how to simply open them and turn them on! The kids realize how special this is and have been handling them with the utmost care. Even the teachers have been enjoying the lessons!


How does GVI Phoenix make a difference?
