5 Star Legacy Foundation is raising funds to support a new program to bring hope to children who have been orphaned in impoverished communities worldwide.
Mark Comer, founder of 5 Star Legacy Foundation, a Utah-based non-profit organization, announced the program today. “Educating children is the answer to breaking the cycle of poverty wherever it exists,” he said. “Getting the Internet to the kids accelerates the flow of information to them and, we expect, will improve their level of education.”
The new concept brings in technology through the introduction of computers, introduces basic Internet service, and adds one more key ingredient to the program … online mentors. 5 Star Legacy Foundation (5starlegacyfoundation.org) is now receiving cash donations toward the acquisition of computers, new and used, as well as basic programs to supplement their existing curriculum.
“The mentoring program we are implementing today makes the world a very small place for these kids. Most of the children we have helped worldwide have no access to the modern technology that many of us take for granted,” said Comer. “Think about how this access has dramatically increased your own ability to communicate and network throughout the world.”
The first application of this program is taking place today at FEBE Orphanage in Manado, Indonesia with over 100 children. It will grow from there based on the program’s success.
