4.9 Million Youth
Since 2000, the generous donations of volunteer time, computers, and money to our nonprofit from companies, foundations, and individuals have already helped 4.9 million young people in 3,465 schools, youth centers, libraries, and universities in 51 countries connect with the opportunities, skills, and understanding of the internet. The demand is still great. We have heard interest from 4,500 organizations in 79 developing countries.
Our 675 volunteers take on a variety of tasks. Many work in our chapters in Australia, Canada, Puerto Rico, and the USA to refurbish our computers and load educational content. Some work to gather and secure approval for our use of educational content. Many volunteer as Development Officers to provide online capacity building and our eCorps volunteers provide onsite tech training in many of the countries to which we ship. We also have teams of volunteers helping us develop our Inspire Girls and School Refurbishing Clubs projects that we are piloting in countries where we have Field Associates. In many cases we are aided by our 23 global education and environmental Strategic Allies. Above are volunteers at WCE Chicago Chapter.
WCE now has 11 Field Associates representing us in 10 African countries. They help recruit and provide services to Partner organizations. They are developing WCE refurbishing and training Chapters in their countries. They also help us recruit teachers in their countries to work with teachers in the USA to co-develop tools for teachers working to inspire girls to pursue careers in technology. To the left is Leroy Beldeh, WCE Field Associate in Liberia during his visit to the WCE Chicago Chapter. He has also visited the WCE Baltimore-Washington Chapter.
