Education Impact Project:

Education Impact Project (EIP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating an education hub in the Ivory Coast by partnering with Lycee Moderne d’Anyama (LMA) to build a multi-media library to reinforce both the students and teachers with digital and literacy skills.  EIP is requesting 22 desktop sets and 2 laptops with French content for the library. The computers will be used by 5050 students a year and 2660 of these students are female. As part of their organization, they are introducing a program called ImpactGirls to close the gap of gender inequality in the town and increase opportunities for young girls. EIP has an annual budget of $10,000 and they have already paid the full amount for the equipment. They are also hoping we can serve as their fiscal agent until their application for their 501-©3 status is approved by the IRS.
