Director of Foreign Affairs Kandahar personally donates computer to ACCC

May 6th, 2008 No comments

Shah Ahmad Saeed, the Director of Foreign Affairs Kandahar, has generously given a high-speed computer to the Afghan-Canadian Community Center (ACCC). This computer, complete with all accessories, can be used with ACCC NComputing devices to create the equivalent of several individual computers, thus reducing the costs of both computer equipment and electricity.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Shah Ahmad Saeed for his generous donation, which will put to good use by many of our students for years to come. Each additional computer allows the ACCC to improve its ability to offer high-quality computer training, online business management courses with the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) and access to the Internet for women in Kandahar.

Afghan School Project reaches fundraising goal for computer lab

December 31st, 2007 No comments

The Afghan School Project, working with UK-based technology news source IT Pro, is proud to announce that we have reached our goal of raising US$3,300 to provide the Afghan Canadian Community Center (ACCC) with an additional 20 computer workstations, which have been offered at a substantial discount from NComputing.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of our supporters, who have helped make this possible. To put it simply, your donation will help change many lives for the better. As a result of your generosity, even more students will be able to receive valuable education that will help them get access to high-paying, long-term employment.

We would like to extend a special thank-you to the generous individual who helped us reach our goal in time. Your gift has touched the volunteers, staff and students who work to provide valuable education under difficult circumstances, and we want you to know how dearly we appreciate your help.

For those of you who are interested in ongoing donations, we have extended the ChipIn program (see below) to raise additional funds for furniture, textbooks and other essentials for the school. Further donations are needed to help us pay for rent, teachers’ salaries, electricity and fuel. If you would like to help, please click “ChipIn!” on the graph below.
