Outsider Ashley Paczolt on Film Annex's Afghan Development Project & GIVE
Ashley Paczolt, the Manager of Ad Operations at Altitude Digital Partners, told us what she thinks about the recent Film Annex initiatives in Afghanistan. Film Annex is currently building Internet classrooms in Afghanistan with the mission to improve the Afghan education system and the economy of Afghanistan. Ashley states:
"I think it is a wonderful program and I wish more individual companies would be willing to take the initiative to start similar projects. People should recognize that they do not need to wait for the government nor the general masses to make a change, they can start it on their own. With the success of this project, maybe others will join, realizing that not only does Afghanistan need help but so do many other countries with similar predicaments. Technology can change a child’s future, not only will it impact their future careers but their knowledge. Often times people are unaware of the effect that technology has on their day to day lives. In the past, people had to go to a library and find a book to read for their information but now all of that information is online. Imagine not having access to all of that information due to the limits of not having a computer with internet. Even one computer with internet access opens up the world to you, we need future generations to be educated. They deserve the opportunity to research problems and gain different perspectives."
