How to help change to world for the cost of your Latte #teachtheweb

2 min read

We at @CoderDojoErode want to change the world. We want to ensure the children of Erode have a chance to read, write, and participate on the Open Web. This will empower people and provide economic opportunity.

We are asking for your help.

I recieved a Tweet last night that a shirt was designed for the seven mentors who run the program.

Not one of the teachers can afford the shirt.These are mentors committed to a better future. They work with young students many, because of gender, caste, or poverty may not have been allowed to, or have never touched a computer before

The mentors of CoderDojoErode volunteer immense hours to ensure a better future for India. They teach html tags and website structure using sidewalk chalk.

They spark a sense of design in the young students who designed the logo that embroiders their shirts.

The mentors fight for Net Nuetrality by using sticks and twine. CoderDojoErode organized an activist rally in their village and represented the cost of fast lanes by driving stakes with strings attached into the unpaved roads of their village.

 

CoderDojoErode crowds around the few laptops the mentors can muster up.

In order to boys and girls who otherwise would get no exposure to the Web in their formalized education.

Can you help the teachers of CoderDojoErode buy a shirt? For the cost of your latte you can say, "Thank You for making the world a better place?"

Please visit our Fundraising Page to donate.

 

I am so excited to help @coderdojoerode play and learn as we read, write, and participate on the web. One year ago I could not build a website. Then friends help. I want to help.
Added the image to the CSS stylesheet. It repeats. I messed up the no repeat code I think. Will need to play more.
