While we nerds get excited about new hardware and software, I think we’re all aware that there’s a big world out there beyond tech. A world that is hurting, with people in need. One corner of that world is the Yida refugee camp in South Sudan, full of people who have fled the genocidal rage of Sudan’s leader, Omar al-Bashir.
The first step is getting them into school, and that’s where you and I can make a difference. Operation Broken Silence runs a primary school in the camp and is planning to open a high school, but needs help funding the 8th grade classroom.
Operation Broken Silence is a non-profit close to my heart.
My brother founded it when we built his very first website together on my trusty iMac G4, but beyond that, as a dad, I know how important having a good education is for kids. It breaks my heart that so many don’t have the opportunities that my three have.
I can’t change much in this world, but I can help the children of Sudan be better prepared for their future.
Together, we can close the financial gap and keep these kids in the classroom, equipping them for a better tomorrow. My birthday is this weekend, and this is all I want: to give a place for these 8th graders to go to school.
