Learning Resource Center

Current Development Project

Spring of Hope offers tutorial classes every day to support the children in their studies. Two full-time tutors work with the children in shifts throughout the day, guiding the students in subjects ranging from Elementary Math and Science to High School Physics and English.

While the tutors work hard to support the children's education in every way they can, they also realize the need for more learning resources. For instance, the children have exercise books but no reference books. And their small classrooms have places to sit, but no writing surfaces.

It's our goal to raise the funds for a new Learning Resource Center as quickly as possible to benefit the students as they prepare for their national exams at the end of the school year. This new Learning Resource Center will go a long way in helping our staff more effectively tutor the children and strengthen areas that need improvement!

10 writing desks for 1 classroom = $442.50

*Phase 2 of the LRC project will include facility expansions to hold 10 more desks in each classroom.

Ping Pong Tables

Learning Resource Center

Recognizing the importance of play in a child's development, the staff would love to provide the children with access to recreational equipment! Table tennis is a favorite pasttime in Ambo, and having access to their own equipment would attract the children to play in a safe, encouraging environment and also give them a fun way to pass the time when they arrive early to their tutoring sessions!

1 ping pong table and accessories = $221.24

2 ping pong tables and accessories = $442.48

Donate to the Ping Pong Tables HERE.

All 5 desktop computers = $1,327.50

Donate to the CarePoint Computer Lab HERE.

Computer Desk with Dividers

Until a separate computer lab room can be constructed, a temporary computer lab will be set up in the CarePoint office meeting hall. The staff would like to purchase a single computer desk unit with built-in dividers, fitting all 5 computers in a structured, focused setting.

1 Computer Desk Unit = $331.86

Donate to the Computer Desk Unit HERE.
