Head Start for Digital Literacy

Participants from last year’s Sandymount 10K Run

This Saturday the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Andrew Montague, will be taking the Camara Challenge by running 10K along Sandymount Strand to give Irish schools in disadvantaged communities a head start in digital literacy.

Camara’s annual 10K Run, now in its third year will raise vital funds to supply 55 Irish schools in need of affordable IT with 1,100 computers and train 300 school teachers in ICT in 2012. Every €5 that is raised will help another child in a disadvantaged area gain access to ICT making it easier for them to reach their employment potential and build a better future.

Camara Education, a charity and social enterprise, works to deliver eLearning opportunities to schools in disadvantaged communities in Ireland, Africa and Jamaica through the re-use of technology.

The run takes place along Sandymount Strand this Saturday, May 26th.  It will commence on the Promenade, Strand Road at 9am sharp with the course stretching around Sean Moore Park and the Irishtown Nature Reserve providing beautiful scenic views of Dublin Bay for entrants. The forecast promises to be a beautiful summers day and along with awards, medals and great prizes for participants it’s set to be a memorable morning for all involved.

The Lord Mayor, a keen supporter of Camara’s work commented, “I am delighted to be joining Camara for the annual Sandymount 10K Run this Saturday. I feel it’s very important that we all do our part in giving children from disadvantaged areas a head start in digital literacy”. While swapping the Lord Mayor’s chain for running shoes, Mayor Montague will also sound the start horn as the official race starter for the event.

He will be joined on the day by Operation Transformation’s Killian Byrne who added ‘Camara’s 10K Run is a great training opportunity for any of the larger runs and by taking part you are helping to deliver eLearning opportunities in under-resourced schools in Ireland. I will be at the front of the start line and hope to be at the front of the finish line!’.

So get involved and help raise vital funds for a great cause. Register now at www.camara.ie

    Now i am trying to see how can you prevent the content from being removed on a youtube video due to copyright laws. I really simply want to see what material seeking so that youtube will not take away the content. As with music, should you use music from just like a CD instead of downloading it from like itunes? Can you give me any suggestions?.
