How We Work to Remove Barriers of Education – Episode 2: Electricity

We often take everyday items for granted, like access to electricity and to the internet. When you walk into a classroom, you would expect the lights to be on, right? Or even an iPad to work from? Unfortunately, for the Chicuchas Wasi School for Girls in Cusco, Peru, that wasn’t the student experience. However, in 2015, a Circle of Sisterhood grant of $5,000 quite literally helped them turn the lights on and gain access to educational resources beyond books. Watch the newest Circle of Sisterhood vlog to see a photo of the girl’s reaction to a computer coming on for the first time in their classroom and how this essential resource is broadening and deepening their education.
