I'm on the board of
Technology Services Corps.
We have high school students refurbish donated computers, then take
them to needy countries. I'll lead a trip to Guatemala in July 2017.
Would you like to donate to help make these trips happen? Our biggest need is for scholarships for low-income students. Garfield High School has a mixed population, and these trips are a great way to promote interaction and friendships among races in a positive context.
I've led trips to:
Costa Rica 2012.
One school in Esquipulas, near Aguas Zarcas, San Carlos (Alajuela);
second in la Union de Venecia (San Carlos).
Two schools in and near the great market town of
Guatemala 2007. Estanzuela, the cleanest town in Guatemala
(With Global Technology Academy, the predecessor to TSC).
