In 2019 we traveled to Guarne Colombia to the Monseñor Alfonso Uribe Jaramillo school.
After running a Facebook acquisition campaign targeting teachers at deserving schools across the world, we chose to sponsor a special elementary school in Guarne Colombia -- Monseñor Alfonso Uribe Jaramillo. Along with a sister school, they support roughly 250 students.
With the dedicated support of the Secretary of Education & Culture, the Mayor, the teachers, and the wonderful local community we successfully set up a secure network with high-speed Internet access, SMARTBoards in every classroom, a printing center, and laptops for the students & teachers. We also secured Google as a sponsor, donating the use of the Google Education platform.
