    Story

    We are fundraising for laptops to create a mobile IT training centre in the Kingdom of eSwatini. Our first site will be a rescue and rehab centre for women, and we spoke to the manager who said "This is what they need. Skills are something no one take from them. This can provide them with an independent living so they don't feel forced to return to abusers!

    Our computer literacy training will make the ladies much more employable, quickly and effectively. There will be more sites where we will be able to use the computers as new projects open up, and we are happy to answer your questions. For now we would love your help to obtain ten laptops so we can deliver the training to the ladies at the centre who are ready to begin now. Thank you for being part of it!
