Mark Rowden Ministry initially provided the Eliza Davis George Memorial Baptist School, located in Liberia with five new computer systems.
After receiving notice that there was a need for students to learn and utilize technology systems, we reached out to several like-minded, concerned individuals and organizations with a request for investments.
In the United States, there are very few students, who have not had access to a computer. A large number of North American students carry a powerful computer system with them daily, in the form of a smart cell phone. We were saddened when we heard of students who did not even know how to turn on a computer.
We believe that investing in the education of students in Liberia and other needful countries will open up new opportunities that will lead to them having a better future.
Computer technology along with internet connectivity opens a wealth of untapped knowledge, enabling the research of various courses of study.
Our extreme thanks go to those who lead off this technology support drive by making the initial monetary donations that allowed us to speedily ship an initial supply of five computers. MRM has since given an additional five computers reaching their original goal of ten.
Dr. Rowden recently spoke with the school principal Noah Jasay and asked how the students had received the initial shipment. Noah replied stating,
“They are just going crazy and wild, this is so phenomenal for them. They have already started using the educational computer programs.”
After receiving the computers, Noah set them up in a common area which is now considered the computer lab.
This new computer lab was not even considered a possibility before our investment. Students are already using the computers to research and complete assignments. Dr. Rowden had the privilege of visiting the school campus in Liberia in December and was taken to the new computer lab where hundreds of students have access to the computer lab. Pastor Noah Jasay Principal of Eliza Davis George Memorial Baptist School states that they are going to break ground to build a larger lab to better facilitate persons from their community to have access to the computer lab.
Although we believe it is important to assist communities around the world that are less fortunate, we also believe it is just as important to provide tools that will boost their performance. In this regard, our computer shipment has already been a move in a positive direction.
Since the five computers were sent, an additional five were sent to grow the computer lab.
During the 2018 visit to Liberia MRM committed to sending an additional 20 desktop computers. One of the goals for 2018-2019 is to purchase at least 20 additional desktop computers. This will significantly increase the number of students who will learn computer technology but will also allow for the citizens in the community to have access to a computer lab. Since our visit to Liberia MRM have sent an additional 20 desktop computers.
We believe your investment in the lives of the current and future students will be highly beneficial. Prayerfully consider a recurring investment that will assist these students and others who are in need around the world. Please consider sponsoring a student at the Eliza Davis George Memorial Baptist School of which 20% of the enrollment are orphans. (See Programs /Support).
