Abridean donates PCs to a new school in Ecuador through Brightside Learning
Abridean, as a result of upgrades done to its software development infrastructure, has provided over a dozen personal computers for use in a new school in Ecuador.
The computers have been donated to Brightside, a group of Nova Scotians who help communities in the Global South. Brightside members will be delivering the computers to the Andean village of Huanca Palaguachi, in Ecuador for use in their newly built school facility.
Brightside teams and the people of Huanca built the P-12 school using local skills and local materials; including mud from the hillsides to make adobe bricks. The school has a staff of 14 and services 220 children from 12 surrounding villages. It has classrooms, a cafeteria, a kitchen and washrooms as well as a teacher’s residence.
In completing this project the people of Huanca did more than build a school. They rediscovered faith in themselves and in their ability to transform their community.
Abridean is pleased to be a part of this project.
