Shipping Container Computer Suite Minglanilla

Originally I was looking to donate an entire suite but think its better to maintain control of the computers and building to create a community centre where people can come and learn new skills. The local schools could also book time to use it so instead of one school having all the computers all schools gain access to the computers. On the evenings offering local lessons on Excel,word and teaching people how to blog as well as basic computer use are all things the Computer suite can be used for.

When I looked at this video for Haiti I could see the viability of this project working as the shipping container as well as being mobile is very secure. Building a 20ft shipping container computer suite with 10 PCs would greatly enhance the communities education. This is why I am asking for the basic $4,000 although bearing in mind this also covers the cost of computers as well as the shipping container. I am sure the skills learned by the current and next generations via the suite will open up possibilities they may have never had otherwise.

I am looking to locate the first suite in Minglanilla,Cebu,Philippines and seeing how it progresses over time and how it will be utilised by the local people. Hoping that the skills developed over time will help lift people out of poverty but also that the first suite will show where peoples true interests lie in learning to help them get the most from it.

 

Shipping Container Store In Minglanilla,Cebu,Philippines

A barber and T-Shirt printing shop in one, a shipping container maybe the best option for many start up business units especially if leasing land as it can be dropped and then moved when you move. At the same time securely locking away your store front every night. This same location has another two shipping containers being used for other things, a bed spacer (room rental) which sees a 20ft container split into two bunk rooms and a battery and car/motorbike oil sales office. I have to admit they haven’t gone overboard on concealing the fact they are containers but then again do they have to? Here in the Philippines people generally aren’t bothered by the looks of things on the exterior and often the best seafood restaurants for example are just a BBQ and a few tables and chairs at the side of the road.
