Located high in the Middle Atlas mountains, this project takes place in a community that was isolated for centuries. Reliable transportation has only been available in [http://www.thesiswritingservice.com/ thesis writers] the last decade. As a result of being closed off for so long with little opportunities, the majority of the adult women are illiterate. The computer literacy classes aim to change this startling reality.
  
The project is designed to provide free computer proficiency classes to residents of this Kyrgyz community. Specifically, the project’s main objective is to provide socially vulnerable women with skills which they would not be able to obtain otherwise due to lack of materials. The project requests funds for five new computers and five desks, and is designed to function for at least three years. Project sustainability will be provided by offering paid advanced classes to those people who are interested in broadening their computer skills. All materials will be installed and maintained by the town's library. The Red Crescent will coordinate participants in the project; participants will be chosen through involvement in past Social Rehabilitation for Vulnerable Women projects.
+
Through this project, 15 women will attend computer literacy classes. Over the course of 4 months, the women will learn the ins and outs of the entire Microsoft Office package, receive Internet tutorials, attend several value-added sessions related to the new Moroccan family code, STIs, and health and wellness, and participate in basic business skills workshops. After receiving instruction for 8 hours a week over 4 months, the women will graduate better prepared to contribute to their family's well-being and the community as a whole. Using the classes as a base, the women will be more empowered to expand their horizons whether it be through new business opportunities, networking skills, or more education.
  
Following a predetermined schedule, instructors will start on basic skills such as Windows orientation, typing, and Microsoft Office. Participants will be allowed free computer time to practice newly acquired skills. Resource sustainability will be funded by offering more advanced students paid classes for additional complex programs, such as Adobe and Internet publishing software, needed to participate in a more world-wide setting.
+
With the help of a non-governmental organization in Rabat and the Peace Corps volunteer, the Youth Center hired trainers, recruited women, donated the use of a facility, and has paid the internet fees. The money generated through the Peace Corps Partnership Program will be used to pay the trainers' salaries, transportation costs, and computer fees. With your help, the first computer literacy classes in this Moroccan community will be a success.
 
 
Classes will be taught at the library, which will be providing instructors' wages. The library will also be providing the room space for materials, electricity, and chairs. The Red Crescent will provide software required to support the initial purpose and all advanced classes to maintain project sustainability.
