Two refurbished Dell Optiplex computers have begun their journey to Arani, Bolivia. The computers will be used to teaching coding to teenagers living in the village.
The donation is part of Reader to Reader’s partnership with the KUSIKUY, a social enterprise business that is working to retail the alpaca fiber clothing crafted by the village’s knitters.
As part of the partnership, Reader to Reader is donating computers, Spanish-language children’s books, and a collection of business marketing books that have been requested in order to help support the educational needs of local entrepreneurs.
At an altitude of 9,400 feet, the village of Arani is located in the center of Bolivia, and has a population of 3,512.
