In the first video from our Global Poverty Perspectives series, you will meet to Darius, who lives in Lusaka, Zambia with his family. The family works hard to make ends meet. But access to daily needs can still be a struggle. See how technology like phones and internet access are difficult to pay for and yet essential in the family’s fight to escape poverty.
The second video from our Global Poverty Perspectives series is your chance to hear from Josie and Jhon, a mother and son from the Philippines. Join them as they share their insights about the value and importance of technology that’s as simple as a secondhand TV.
Our third Global Poverty Perspectives video takes you to one of our five community centers in Jalisco, Mexico. You'll learn from our education director, Berenice, and sisters Britany and Daniela about the rapidly accelerating role of technology in their lives. You'll also have the chance to see how gifts like yours are helping to equip children and communities for the future.
Thanks to support from friends like you, families who lack access to technology can receive much-needed assistance. Life-changing resources like computer labs and libraries are also available. And your gifts even help promote digital literacy that prepares children and youth for secondary education and the workforce. These are just a few of the many ways your compassion has the power to change lives!

How much and how do you get your child a tablet?
Oct 31, 2022
Thank you so much for your desire to purchase a tablet! Unfortunately, it’s a bit more complicated as we have to ensure the family has electricity and internet costs can vary from country to country. If you’d like to see about providing funds for a tablet for your sponsored child’s family, please contact the Care Team.
