Hack The Virus: Your contribution

Donate access to technology to low-income high school students in Colombia

Code For A Change has created a charitable campaign during the COVID-19 outbreak to support the education of low-income high school students in San Jose (Educational Institution), Circasia, Colombia by donating easy access to the Internet and electronic devices. IE San Jose is a public school whose students come from vulnerable families (domestic violence, child neglect, unemployment, among others).

The professional future of these students is at risk, and we are here to offer our support. In this institution, there are 1000 students, 267 students of which without Internet access, 143 without electronic devices at home, and others have to share a laptop with their multiple family members. We all know how hard it can be to pursue a potential higher education without having this “freedom”. All these students are facing challenges to complete their studies due to the COVID-19 outbreak, as they must stay at home. Code for A Change launches this international campaign to give them easy access to technologies for their education.

You can help them to continue their studies online from home by donating or sharing this information.
