About Ross River, Yukon Territory
5 hours North of Whitehorse you will find Ross River School, where 60 K-12 students study in 6 classrooms. The Principal of Ross River has asked OLPC for help to connect Ross River students to technology that is critical to 21st century learning. We are asking for your help to amplify our impact in the Yukon by connecting these students to the tools they need to succeed.
Message from Ross River Principal Fran Etzel:
"The use of technology is greatly needed to enhance student success in school. Many do not own computers, so the use of technology at home is limited. New digital tools can enhance student learning both at school and home. The Kaska language can also be delivered through technology if all students had access to computers. This would help to ensure that all Kaska youth have full access to technology when required".
Thank you donating to the Ross River campaign and making a positive impact on Indigenous education in the far North.
Please note that OLPC Canada is a registered non-profit rather than a registered charity, and we are therefore unable to provide charitable tax receipts at this time. We are currently exploring partnership opportunities in this area. Please check back for updates.
