Pupils from Corjova village gymnasium, Criuleni region, will be able to study computer science in a lab equipped by Edelweiss Foundation. The foundation donated 20 modern computers to Corjova School, together with a multifunctional printer and ensured the Wi-Fi connection in the building.

After being notified about the state of things at Corjova gymnasium, Edelweiss Foundation decided to render a helping hand to the institution. During their classes, pupils were forced to work in groups of four at one computer, because out of a total number of 11 old computers that school has, only 3 are functional. Without an external assistance, the school would never be able to afford to invest in computer lab.

Through this type of assistance, Edelweiss Foundation got one more step closer to achieving its goal of equal study opportunities for pupils. “The access to a computer with internet connection should be a casual thing in Moldova. And where things are different, people of goodwill should give a helping hand. This is a belief shared by Vlad Plahotniuc, the founder of Edelweiss Foundation, who is doing his best to help people in need, in order to offer a chance young people like you to study ”, said Lara Moraru, the Executive Director of Edelweiss Foundation during her visit to Corjova.

The donation made not only young people happy, but also teachers from Corjova. Veaceslav Trioan, computer science teacher, mentioned that now that they have a modern lab, he will not only teach pupils but also teach teachers, so that are able to use modern educational methods.
