Aware Bear Computers on 5 Monroe Avenue (585)473-7035 along with the Rochester Institute of Technology and Andre Leite Alves from Rochester NY donated computers and digital cameras to the public school Arquiplago in Fernando de Noronha Brazil. The kids from the Brazilian public school system need computers and digital cameras in order to get their classroom assignments done.
Since the 1960s when the dictatorship went in full effect in Brazil and other countries in South America, the investment in education and hospitals went down. The Brazilian public school system does not have the funds to purchase high end technological equipment.
With that in mind Aware Bear Computers in Pittsford NY built and donated computers that are able to run image editing software and allow the kids to photograph and later do the photo processing using a computer. Andre Leite Alves from Rochester NY owner of Aware Bear Computers in Pittsford NY spent over a month at the Fernando de Noronha Island off the coast of Brazil training teachers and school faculty on how to use the donated digital cameras and computers.
Andre Leite Alves also took time off from his busy schedule in Rochester New York and was able to diagnose and revamp several computers and laptops that were not being used by the school due to lack of parts and proper personal to repair them. Helping the community is my number one priority says the owner of Aware Bear Computers in Pittsford NY.
Andre Leite Alves also helped the government owned IBAMA and Projeto Tamar in Fernando de Noronha. Once I got there everyone needed computer repair help or had a question about digital photography. This could be from how to use the software to printing or they just had a question about a camera they wanted to buy.
