ESSOC Internet & Laptop Program

The government of El Salvador was proactive in March placing the country in quarantine. College classes were cancelled and quickly moved to virtual formats. Students in the Educational Scholarships for Students of Chiltiupan (ESSOC) College Scholarship Program had to adapt. Many, but not all, had laptop computers provided by St. Dominic parishioners. Most, but not all, had access to internet. Each student made arrangements within this new normal.

To meet this need of technology for our students, St. Dominic is creating an internet hub at Herbert's home located in the central part of Chiltiupan. Students will have access to this hotspot for virtual classes, sending, and receiving assignments.

With 114 students in our college program, laptops are always a need. To provide a laptop computer, contact Jodie Bowers,
