Access to computers and the Internet provides children with access to the world outside of the slums. Computers are an invaluable medium for teaching and inspiring children.
Gabriel Project recently opened a brand new computer lab in the Kalwa slums at the Joshua Jacob Greenberger Learning Center. The computer lab is utilized by the daily classes for educational purposes, technology classes, and exposing the children to educational content beyond the classroom. GPM will soon be starting a computer certification course for residents of the slum to assist the children's parents in gaining skills to help them with employment opportunities.
The computer center is dedicated in loving memory of Ida Zatz Leberman, mother of Jay Leberman, Director of the Kivumin program. Jay visited GPM with Kivunim students, after their visit they were inspired by GPM's programs and decided to hold a fundraising campaign to support GPM's educational work in the slums.
