National Geographic explorer Mike Libecki and his 14-year-old daughter Liliana in their latest venture collaborated with Dell as a part of its Give Back Project and worked in a remote village of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh.
They have installed new solar power panels and solar generators for the computer centers and other buildings in the community. At Jhamtse Gatsal’s Children’s Community, which is home to about 90 children, the father-daughter duo, along with Dell employees, have installed 20 new laptops, new printers, Internet access and are imparting computer education to kids and teachers in Tawang.
Mike said to provide solar energy, a new computer lab with computers and internet has been installed, because the goal of the orphanage is to provide education to the kids. They want the children to go to college; without having computers and internet, they will lag behind and not be able to do.
Jhamtse Gatsal’s Children’s Community is located in Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh. The nearest town is Lumla, less than half an hour away by car, or an hour or two by foot. It is a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent.
Most of the children at the community have a background of hardship and the goal of the community is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.
