MARSH HOME COMPUTER PROJECT - (15) Windows 10 compatible desktops and (10) tablet computers - either Windows 10 OS or Android OS.

The Marsh Children's Home is in desperate need of new computers to replace our woefully outdated 2011 model computers. As education is our primary focus at the Marsh Home, we are giving top priority to this very special project.

Our goal regarding the number of computers and types of computers (and their respective Operating Systems) is based on the amount of "counter" space we have available in our computer center. Additionally, we factored in the number of children that will be attending our computer classes. We currently have 80 children at the Marsh Home.

It has been decided by our Board of Directors that what will work best for this special project will be to have both an "Introduction to Computers" class for those children who have never used computers; and "Advanced Computer Classes" for the older children who have already taken computer classes and are more familiar with how to use computers.

As part of our collective strategy, we will also have our new computer teacher assess which of the eldest children are the most computer literate. These will be the ideal candidates to be assistants for our computer teacher; and will be able to individually assist the children in the room during the computer classes themselves. And, as is part of our strategy, we can also teach these more computer literate, more motivated kids, to become actively involved in helping us promote the Marsh Home on our various Social Media websites.

Therefore, we hope to find a donor who would like to a make a very special contribution to our children's education. We are currently soliciting financial donations to purchase (15) Windows 10 based "desktop" computers and (10) "tablets"; or, touchscreen-based computers that run on either Windows 10 or Android OS. We feel this is the best possible "mix" of computers given the number of children at the Marsh Home and the available space we have allocated in our Computer Center.

Buying computers (or accepting donated computers) from the United States is not the ideal situation for this project, for both logistical and fiscal reasons. The cost of shipping and the subsequent "import taxes" that we would have to pay to Mexican Customs will, most likely, make sending computers from the USA cost-prohibitive.

Please consider being this very special donor - or making a financial donation via our website to be earmarked specifically for this vital Computer Project. Your generous financial donations (or new computers) will make a world of difference in these children's lives. It will provide them with the necessary computer skills to find both meaningful and good paying jobs after graduating from High School. In short, you can help these wonderful children create their own brighter future! We hope you decide to Join Us!

We thank you in advance for you kind consideration. If you have any specific questions, please contact Jeff Gillen, our Online Donation Coordinator, at the following email address: hola@marshchildrenshome.org.mx

 

INFIRMARY FOR MEDICAL EMERGENCIES

We need to re-install our infirmary in the event of an emergency that we had to convert it into a living quarter for 4 more children that Mama Jovita could not refuse.

We are currently soliciting a donations of medical supplies (bandaids, gauze, medical tape, bandages, Q-Tips®, alcohol, digital thermometers, aspirin, Children's Tylenol®, cough syrup, etc.). The donation of a blood pressure monitor and glucose tester; an examination table and chair; and a scale so that we can monitor and document the height and weight of the children would also be invaluable.

We're also looking for used hospital equipment such as a stainless steel examination table; basic emergency room items such as band-aids, alcohol, tape, gauze & bandages, a supply of basic drugs like aspirin, anti-biotics, cold & flu medicines, and any other items you might find in an emergency room. Perhaps you're a nurse or doctor that works at a hospital that has some older equipment that is not being used and can be donated.

If you are unable to make actual donations, you can still help the kids at the Marsh Home. If you are a professional doctor or nurse, or perhaps an EMT, you could compile a list of medical equipment, medical instruments, prescription drugs and necessary items for an potential medical emergency. Perhaps such life saving drugs that counteract the effects of a possible food allergy.  Plus, any medications and / or anti-venom treatments for children who may be allergic to bee stings or a potential sting from a scorpion. We would like to have these items "on-hand" and ready for any possible emergency.

So, if you are such a person who could compile a list for us, please contact Jeff Gillen, our Online Donation Coordinator, at: hola@marshchildrenshome.org.mx

 

ENCYCLOPEDIA SET & EDUCATIONAL BOOKS (in Spanish)

We are currently seeking Financial Donations or a Special Sponsor to enlarge our library at the Marsh Home. Donations of Children's books, educational books and a Set of Encyclopedias (in Spanish) would be a great way to help the Kids.

Achievement is one of the 4 Principles at the Marsh Children's Home. We place great emphasis on education. All of the Children are required to attend school. After school, the Children also perform various chores around the Marsh Home. This allows us to teach the Children invaluable skills for entering their adult life. Social-skills, personal hygiene, eating a balanced diet and excercising are all taught at a young age so that they become habitual, life-long skill sets.

We also think it is vital to instill the concept of learning as a core belief. We encourage the Children to continue their education in the evenings, after they have finished their homework. This is why we wish to increase the number of educational books in our library.

If you are able, please send us history books, books about culture, social studies, art and music — any subjects you can think of that will enrich the lives of these amazing Children.

ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANICA - 2003 WORLD BOOK ENCYCLOPEDIA - 2013

SPANISH-TO-ENGLISH DICTIONARIES & BOOKS

Emphasis on education at the Marsh Home includes introducing the Children to a second language. The fact that English is an internationally recognized language, and because of Mexico's proximity to the United States, we encourage the Children to learn English at an early age.

We are searching for a Financial Donor or Special Sponsor who will purchase 60 - 80 Spanish-English books / study guides for the Kids. This can be done simply by clicking on one of the images below. This will take you to Amazon.com. Simply add as many copies of the book featured below to your Amazon Shopping Cart. Click on the book to link to it's buy page on Amazon.com - it's that easy.
