Thanks to Craig of craigslist!

Tomorrow’s Youth Organization is hugely grateful to Craig Newmark, customer service rep and founder of craigslist, for today’s donation of $10,000! We also appreciate efforts by the Clinton Global Initiative and US-Palestine Partnership that helped Craig find us in his efforts to improve life in the West Bank through access to technology.

The funds will be used to buy 9 updated, web-ready computers and necessary accessories for TYO’s computer lab in Nablus. This hardware will enable the most disadvantaged and marginalized children, youth and women in Nablus, Palestine to connect with old and new friends and resources beyond their city, which is encircled by military checkpoints.

Keep your eyes on this page to see the computers in action once we get them purchased and installed! A preview of how the computers will make life better in Nablus is available here. In the meantime, shukran ktir, Craig, from the whole TYO Nablus community!
