Mr. Ahsan has decided to prioritize donations as he values that this is the best way for DCI Vegas to make an impact on the organization. The chapter has been able to secure numerous donations from various sources. The most recent donation was from Faith Lutheran High School, a nearby high school to the Meadows School, who generously donated 108 iPads to DCI. These iPads will be used for developing the communication between DCI supported children here in Bangladesh with their sponsors from America. These iPads will also be used in the continued education efforts of the orphanage, who currently are responsible for teaching over 48 orphaned girls ranging from kindergarten to 8th grade. The iPads will allow the orphanage to guarantee an iPad for every student as they continue their studies in traditional classes such as mathematics and English. The integration of individualized technology allows teachers to better express information and understand every student’s particular needs. The donation is also reflective of this year’s theme of donation: technology. DCI firmly believes in the numerous advantages that technology can bring when used in education, whether it is using iPads or Khan Academy courses for additional help. The orphanage is continuously expanding, with more and more girls introduced into the building and with current students getting older, the need for help will only increase over time.
Whether it’s sponsoring a child for $15 a month and guaranteeing full coverage of all the education costs or volunteering via a domestic club or at the orphan clinic itself, consider doing what you can to help the cause!
