CFUW Annual International Service Project/Fundraising
“She Belongs in School” – CFUW’s ISP Project for 2023-2024
“She Belongs in School” is a 60 Million Girls Foundation Organization project.
Who benefits from this project? The beneficiaries for She Belongs in School will be adolescent girls (aged approximately 16 to 19 years old) living in remote communities. Approximately 150 girls each year will be able to complete their schooling due to the Mobile Learning Lab. These girls would otherwise not be able to go to school. With the mobile learning lab (LAM), school is brought to them!
What is a Mobile Lab? It includes a server (Remote Area Community Hotspot for Education and Learning, or RACHEL) which is the hotspot for isolated communities and can save 1TB of data, several tablets or other devices for users, and a solar panel. Educational resources can be uploaded to the RACHEL to allow users to access the information through a Wi-Fi connection without Internet connectivity. Read more here.
Where does the project operate? In remote communities within Memba, Erati, and Nacaroa in Mozambique.
What did we like about this project? The fact that it can be easily replicated. Each Mobile Lab costs approximately $5000.
