About

Under the SUPPLEMENTARY EDUCATION PROGRAM, Twenty-First Century African Youth Movement is launching PROJECT MJ 2015 to establish a Computer School Program in Mattru Jong, Sierra Leone. The objective of the program is to provide virtual and, unlimited education access to students, as well as teachers, in the Mattru rural community. This is possible because AYM already runs a Social Enterprise and Business Incubator Center in the township with 24/7 electricity using solar, wind and diesel. We are seeking knowledgeable volunteers and relying on the power of social media to fund PROJECT MJ 2015. Specifically, we are seeking volunteers with lots of Facebook fans, Twitter followers, LinkedIn connections and email subscribers to fund our project via websites such as FirstGiving, Razoo, Fundrazr, Kickstarter, Indiegogo and Crowdrise, etc... In partnership with Techsoup, AYM will be able to purchase most of the products for this project at very reasonable costs. With the Google Grants for Nonprofits, of which AYM is a beneficiary, the organization has the resources to deliver online classes by volunteers directly to students in this rural community in Africa. In-kind donations are also welcome.
