Computer classes through Christian Aid

Many children want to be computer whizzes, and you can help them through Christian Aid.

Schemes like that of Christian Aid’s partner AMO-Congo (A Better Future for Orphans) give them a chance to do just that.

It has helped children like Beni, whose parents died from HIV-related illnesses. Through AMO, Beni attended computer literacy classes and found work in an office services bureau.

Beni stays with his aunt. While he has a room, his brother and sister sleep in a ditch without a roof over their heads. With the money he makes, Beni intends to pay rent on a house for them all to live in.

Gifts like this help people build skills so that they have the prospect of a more secure future.
