Saghbine – Bekaa: Saint Anthony School

14 New Computers

St. Anthony's school is located in Saghbine village, an agricultural village whose 500 annual residents swell to 3,000 in the summertime. The school provides education for 80 students - the majority who come from the families of fruit farmers with modest means. Unfortunately, a majority of the students cannot pay the whole tuition fee and some cannot pay any at all, causing the school to operate at a deficit.

In addition to education, St. Anthony operates a dispensary that helps care for over 1,000 patients a month. Students, their families, and villagers from the surrounding villages who cannot afford high costs of medical care are treated by doctors specializing in Gynecology, General Medicine, Cardiology and Diabetes.

Just $8,000 dollars can help replace the old computers in the technology lab. The computers no longer allow for new software installation and so are no longer useful for educational purposes.

This project is being matched by MCN Build - each dollar you give is worth two.
