End Violence Project
The End Violence Project is a workable project that breaks the cycle of violence and incarceration.
"We provide programs for people who are in prison as well as those who are transitioning back into their community," says founder Mahin Bina, referring to working with former inmates in a half-way house in north Philadelphia. "We help them create a life of non-violence and take charge of their own freedom, so they are responsible for breaking the cycle of personal and inter-generational incarceration."
The End Violence Project also stresses the importance of staying with the family and the widely felt impact of that commitment.
"As the word gets out, people from other cities are contacting us," says Bina, adding that IntelLiDrives´ generous multi-year contributions helped to fund many End Violence Project workshops and to develop a sophisticated, professional website - "our connections to the world outside" - and enables more people to find out about the work they are doing.
Team Children´s goal is to ensure every family, school and organization that cannot afford new computers has the tools and resources needed to compete and contribute effectively in today´s digital global economy. To date, Team Children has distributed thousands of computers to local schools, individual families and non-profit organizations.
Team Children also works with an organization called Aspira whose mission is to empower the Puerto Rican and Latino community through advocacy, education and leadership development of its youth.
"We have put computers in each of their charter schools and we´re also working with their three and four year-olds to give them early literacy skills," says Team Children founder, Robert Toporek. "Working with the pre-school, we have produced unprecedented results in eight classrooms this year. We taught forty three year-olds how to read over 500 words in English and Spanish."
Toporek adds that many Hispanic children grow up and drop out of high school before they finish. Early literacy gives them skills and confidence they need to become self-learners.
"We are raising money for all these efforts," says Toporek, "and IntelLidrives has generously contributed to our million-dollar mission to continue doing what we do. Their contribution allows us to make a difference."
Bridges to Algebra
Trenton High School is an old building with limited resources and a large population of culturally diverse students and recent immigrants all dealing with a variety of challenges including, gang pressures, language barriers, and low parental involvement in education. The school is in a district where people are underemployed and faced with severe economic challenges. The classrooms reflect this lack, from the holes in the blackboard to the need for basic supplies for teachers and students.
Curtis Aubry, a 9th grade algebra teacher, set out to transform his classroom, literally, and to engage and empower his students in their mathwork. He invited friends, family and business community to contribute funds towards supplies for his room. In a short period of time he had received hundreds of dollars to improve his classroom. And IntelLidrives was proud to participate in this effort along with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and HP and National Lab Day.
"Next I´ll ask for field trips," says Curtis. "I am currently selecting 15 kids who have an interest in business to attend a business luncheon at Princeton Hyatt. They´ll have an opportunity to network with people from local hospitals and universities. I´m going to have them wear suits, make their own business cards and indicate what kind of work they want to do over the summer. I am raising my students to be fully functioning adults in the world by teaching them things such as anger management, time management, and responsibility."
