Handing over of computersOn Monday, December 17th the Embassy of the Republic of China (Taiwan) handed over BZ8,936 to the RESTORE Belize Program for the launching of the “Computer Assisted Learning” program. The finances will be used to purchase 100 computers, which will be used to teach people how to read.

The computers will be equipped with software which will have participants learn to read. Through the program, participants will be taken from basic letter to sound association to the ability of reading complex words.

At the handing over, Ambassador of Taiwan to Belize, H.E. David Wu, explained that they have been the first to step up and assist the Government in their crime- fighting measures and they were pleased to do so once again.   

The donation came after Restore Belize presented the project to the Embassy in October of this year proposing to use a life cycle approach to improving the literacy skills of children and their families for their better entry into economic skills training, business and job placement programs.
