"5 Laptops 5 Youth" recipients get their laptops!

Sky's the Limit Album > "5 Laptops 5 Youth" recipients get their laptops!
Thanks to the 35 donors who made it possible, 5 youths received laptops from our first ever crowdfunidng campaign on Thursday April 24th.

Our goal was to raise $1100 to purcahase 5 laptops for 5 youth who needed them for the reasons below:

Muna is a newcomer to Canada who is currently taking classes at an adult secondary school in order to upgrade her skills and continue on to post-secondary education.

Donovan is a student in the Redirection through Education Program at George Brown and wants to enroll in the Child and Youth Worker program in the future.

Katrina is looking for employment as well as schools and courses to enroll in.

Danyal is a new immigrant to Canada who wants to continue his business - designing signs and graphics for websites – and learn new skills in HTML, programming, and graphic animation.

Amanuel, a refugee to Canada and a graduate of Electrical Engineering, wants to learn how to use engineering software while looking for a job to gain Canadian work experience.

Without your help, as well as the help of our board who DOUBLED the donations, these 5 youth wouldn't have been able to have access to their own laptop. On behalf of STL and the youth recipients, thank you so much!!!
