Education is one of the biggest priorities of the Trocano Araretama Conservation Project, so when Jonilson of the São Joaquim community approached us for help we were more than happy to oblige.
Jonilson represented the Maria Borges de Almeida School in São Joaquim, and he told us that there was an item of equipment that the school urgently needed to assist the young children in their education: a printer.
While it may not seem an obvious request, what a printer would facilitate in the school, which is comprised of 77 students and 3 teachers, is the ability to print traceable letters for the young children to teach them how to write. It would improve the efficiency of the time spent in school as teachers could print out tests for the students to take without having to get them first to transcribe the questions into a copy book, a time consuming and avoidable exercise.
This week the school sent us pictures they took of the printer that was donated, and we are delighted to know that this small addition to their school is having a large positive impact on the education of its students.
