Executive Director, Jodi Fischer was recently showcased in her alma mater's publication
, the University of Denver Magazine. In this piece, you can learn more about the work of Marshall Direct Fund in Pakistan and some of the ways you can get involved. Jodi will be heading back to Pakistan in late Spring 2015 and is happy to bring any of the following wish list items. Please email email@example.com to learn more. Financial contributions are always welcome and can be made here
Laptops Battery time allows staff to communicate and gain access to teaching tools even during the frequent power outages.
Digital or video cameras Would love to better capture student and staff experiences to share with supporters, but to also assist with vocational training module replication.
Cell phones Staff are in need of effectively and regularly communicating with school administrators, parents, and taking photo/videos. Smart phones also welcomed since admin staff would benefit from accessing internet and sharing tools for instruction aids.
Printers (2) Printable worksheets for kids are great tools for teachers.They help to make subjects like reading, writing, math, and science fun and engaging.
Computers (2) Laptops are preferable to deal with the power outages, but these are still welcomed for both staff operations and student learning and for computer literacy programs
UPS Generator (1) Power shortage and load shedding has worsened in the last few years. Often facilities are without electricity for hours, sometimes all day during the hottest months. Uninterrupted Power Supply is detrimental for keeping the lights, fans, and equipment on.
White Boards (10) Many of our classrooms do not currently have chalk or white boards and this would assist tremendously with instruction.
Students Desks (60 3-seaters) Much of our previously donated were used and are over five years old and in disrepair, we also wish to accommodate new admissions.
Projectors (2) Provide teachers and trainers multimedia tools to assist with instruction.**Please note, smaller easily transported items can be donated in the US which can be brought over by our home office staff in spring 2015. If you are located in Pakistan, all donations are welcomed. If you wish to donate financially to ensure the purchase of any of the items, we would also be happy to accept.
