    A little boost in technology goes a long way

    Day 103

    Let’s Learn by Playing!

    In their journey to a life with more opportunities, many migrant families need to make sacrifices. Unfortunately, one of those sacrifices is a disruption in education for kids—it’s almost impossible to keep up with school when you’re on the move.

    Luckily, at La Casa de La Misericordia in Nogales, Mexico, teachers hold class from Monday through Friday, with the goal of keeping kids learning during their stay at the shelter. 

    For our next stop on this season’s Thank-a-Thon, and in recognition of the hard work and dedication of these incredible teachers, we’re providing educational technology, making their jobs a little easier. 

    Called VTech, these consoles are tailored to the diverse needs of students, while also allowing them to have a little fun. It’s an opportunity to learn through games and motivate children to persevere in their studies.

    The teachers at the shelter loved it. “It’s a way to get students’ attention!” they said. And we know that’s no small feat for teachers, anywhere!
