Agility Brazil donated 26 more Chromebooks and videoconferencing equipment to their partners at Mão Amiga to support social distance learning.
In a partnership that started in 2019, Agility Brazil collaborated with the Mão Amiga project in São Paulo to support 600 students by setting up a computer lab, donating 40 Chromebooks, and starting a “Google for Education” initiative. This year they continued their partnership with the organization donating 26 more Chromebooks and video conferencing equipment to support more students during this time.
Students are now obligated to continue their studies from home due to COVID-19. By supplying the organization with more Chromebooks, they are able to lend out the devices to more students on a rotational basis, for the students to be able to complete their coursework in time.
Mão Amiga was founded in 2002 as a civil society organization with a mission to break the cycle of poverty through quality education. They are a philanthropic school, formal and regular, offering an innovative model of education that serves close to 600 students from kindergarten to high school. They are part of an international VIS Foundation network that aims to assist in the management of humanitarian projects.
