Finacial ressources: CRED banks on its battery of youth violunteers to conduct the project. However, we need to pay staff for key positions such as: psychologists, doctors, and teachers who will fill the vacancy created by the erathquake.
We will also need to purchase a generator to provide energy in the learning center and 4 computers to provide new skills to the children.
Donations will help us buy food, pay teachers, moderators, doctors who will play an essential role in the project.
