CoderDojoErode is a group of volunteer mentors trying to teach the youth in a small Southern Indian Village how to read, write, and participate on the web.
The mentors reached out to me because they are trying to raise a few dollars. Not for a fancy laptop cart, or tablets, or some other wizardry.
The mentors do not have enough money for clothes. Someone created a shirt using the logo the CoderDojoErode students designed. The seven mentors who teach these young students do not have enough funds to buy a shirt.
Yes you read that correct. They are donating hours every week to make sure the next generation of Indians can have pathways out of poverty and these teachers do not have enough funds to clothe themselves.
I decided to help them out. My first goal is to raise enough money to buy seven shirts. Any funds after that will be used to buy computers for the club.
They are learning html code with sidewalk chalk. In a brilliant lesson lesson the mentors taught students how to structure websites by drawing html tags on the ground using chalk.
CoderDojoErode fights for net neutrality in India using string. They represented the cost and speeds of fast lanes using rope.
When the mentors meet with their students they pass around one laptop on the unpaved roads of their village.
ClubDojoErode is a committed group of mentors that help #teachtheweb. Can you spare on cup of coffee to ensure they are clothed?
