The majority of the projects Close the Gap supports with computer and other IT material is located in Africa. However, a few projects are also located in South-America and Asia. One of the projects in Asia that received donated IT material in 2018 is Hopeful Children Center.
Hopeful Children Center is located in Cambodia and focuses on education, humanitarian aid, employment, and access to water and sanitation. They aim to provide good education and shelter in order to give underprivileged Cambodian children a better future, thus increasing their chances to get a better job.
They support 15 local primary schools and 2 secondary schools. In 2018, Close the Gap donated 6 notebooks to Hopeful Children Center to support them with this educational aspect of their mission.
Apart from supporting schools, Hopeful Children Center also installs water pumps, helps people build homes and offers accommodation for university students in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city. They also have been teaching English classes for the past 10 years to local Cambodian children.
