Education for a Brighter FutureDo you have books and laptops lying unused around your house?
If the answer to that question is yes, then please consider donating these items to Hands of Hope Ministries.
Wanted, second hand or new Laptops
It's amazing how far technology has come in such a short time and the major impact computers now have in the lives of everyone in our world. Hands of Hope Ministries work in very poor areas where the children have no access to computers. In fact, some are still frightened of Duane's laptop.
Hands of Hope aim to set up a computer lab and load the laptops with specific education software which will include, word processing, mathematics and spelling. Within this computer lab environment the children will not only improve their academic skills but also acquire the much needed computer skills in todays world.
Wanted, kids reading books
You can help improve and share the pleasure of reading with the less fortunate by donating your old kids books to Hands of Hope Ministries. So many of us have books piling up in corners, lining up along the floor, stacked in piles on desks, overflowing from our bookshelves. Donate these books today and help young children learn to love to read.
Are ALL kinds of Laptops and Books accepted?
All laptops need to be in good working order and if possible, though, not essential as long as they are in good working order, under 3-4 years old. If you still have the original operating software for the laptops then please include it as well.
Most used book donations are gladly accepted. Currently, the most pressing need is kids books for grades 1 to 8 (ages 5-14). Please make sure the books are complete and in good condition

Donating your old or new laptop, and/or reading books is extremely simple.
