“The variety of programming offered by ABC Learn is quite impressive and my brother and I are excited to lend them our support,” says Julian Omidi co-founder of No More Poverty. “The really exciting part though is the impact they are making in both in the local community and in the lives of students and participants. They are always adjusting their offerings to appeal to today’s youth, recent additions include computer training and a music video program. Donations of computer hardware and software are current needs. Please contact the organization directly with offers of help.”
