My Tech Guys are delighted to announce our recent donation to Proyecto Cocomango, a grassroots community organization that works to expand educational and artistic opportunities, protect the environment, and develop social and economic resources for Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua, and neighboring communities.
CocoMango was established in July 2014 by a mixture of individuals who have been carrying out projects in the Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua since 2011. The organization is run by a community-elected Board of local leaders and expatriates and has self-assigned community members working in 4 branches: Education; Environment; Art; and Economic & Social Development.
My Tech Guys donated a recycled all in one system for the project, and it was transported and set up on site by the Co-Director of Proyecto Cocomango, Erika Massicotte, a local resident that has been volunteering in Nicaragua since January 2016. The all-in-one system is being used for their computer literacy program, typing classes, and English lessons for the youth of the Laguna de Apoyo region.
Any chance we have to use our infrastructure to help locally or abroad, we are happy to do so! Nothing makes our day like saving the product from the landfill and putting it in the hands of people in need! Thanks to Erika for doing the real hard work.Brian Bailey
The all-in-one system made it safe and sound to Proyecto CocoMango. The director was thrilled when I showed him the computer that you generously donated to us. Just like me, he couldn’t believe its high quality and effectiveness. We are so grateful.Erika Massicotte
The sponsorship is part of My Tech Guys ongoing commitment to giving back and repurposing computers. For more about the recycling program at My Tech Guys, read our news article on the subject here!
