rudaynaa commented on Thaki: Unlock their potential

Thank you for your comment, Mia. Much appreciated!
I am familiar with Rumie and will contact them regarding this issue. Thank you for the suggestion!

Kind regards,
Rudayna

Hello Mustafa. Commendable project. My NGO, Thaki (www.thaki.org) is focused on supporting refugee children though e-learning in Lebanon. Let's connect!

Best regards,
Rudayna

Hello Kate. Thank you for the connection to TabLab - a great initiative! They seem to be focused on Africa and Latin America but I will certainly reach out to them. I have been in touch with Juliana Rotich, founder of www.brck.org ( http://www.lionessesofafrica.com/lioness-juliana-rotich/), as well as Rumie (https://www.rumie.org/) who have a Syrian refugee focus. Both these organizations leverage the tablet platform with offline content.

Thank you also for the connection to Musatafa Alhaj - I will reach out to him too; we have not yet connected in the field.

Regarding viable counts for donation, they could be as low as 10 laptops. We are currently piloting the shipment of a small donation from the US to Lebanon with a new potential logistics partner to see if it is feasible to ship from North America to the Middle East. We should have the results within a couple of months.
