Episcopal Church in Micronesia (ECIM) Outreach Program

SHIP/HOOPS wishes to express its gratitude to the ECIM for conducting an outreach program to Chuuk. Andrew Kerr of the Episcopal Church in Micronesia (ECIM) came to Chuuk and worked with SHIP/HOOPS. Andrew has been teaching Chuuk High School students how to make Power Point and other audiovisual presentations and how to use the Internet more effectively.

Not stopping there, the Episcopal Church in Micronesia (ECIM) is raising money and equipment to help support the Chuukese NGO, SHIP/HOOPS. Led by teacher, Clark Graham, SHIP/HOOPS provides education opportunities through linking students to their culture and rich history, and engaging them athletically in team sports. Currently, Clark is operating a small, portable Macintosh computer lab and is in dire need of equipment and money to help repair the laptops (all is equipment is 2nd hand or older). All of the equipment has to be portable because of security and power concerns. ECIM is a registered 501(c)3 and all equipment and cash contributions are tax deductible. Your old computer equipment could make a huge difference in a child’s education.

On behalf of the students, SHIP/HOOPS wants to say “kinissow chapur” (thank you very much).
