A Story From Spain

On the 15th of April, a school in Spain specializing in helping troubled youth, received complementary products from us. We sent them 8 Slim S55 120GB and 2 Slim S55 240GB SSDs. Though we’ve always practiced charitable acts at Silicon Power, we’re making an effort to share that knowledge, internally and externally. The high school, known as Tirant Lo Blanc, celebrated their 50th anniversary last year.

In the school, the students (aged 11-20 years old) can learn arts, math, marketing, electronics, electrical engineering, computers, literature, and much more. They can also take classes to learn a skill like electronics, electricians, various computer fields, and marketing. In the Tirant Lo Blanc, there are about 650 students, 75 teachers, and 5 people working in the office.

Here’s what their teacher Xavier Gregori shared with us:
“We have students of many types: we have very good students without any problems. We have not very good students. And, we have students with a lot of problems. The most typical problem is that they don’t want to study. They are too young to realize that they have to study.

We have students with economic problems: some of they don’t have enough money to buy books, pencils, even food. Some of the students before the school didn’t do anything. Some of them used to smoke drugs in the street. The biggest problem is unemployment. They study, but the unemployment rate is very high. They don’t want to study because after their studies, they can’t have a good job. Silicon Power can help us because we use computers. SSDs are the best way to improve computer power. The Silicon Power SSDs are very good quality, and I like to work with quality products. The students were very happy, because they’ve never worked with SSDs. I told them about the speed of the SSD, and they’ve seen some videos on Youtube. They want to test them in our old computers.”

Still, the school needs more and more help.

“We need modern computers (i5 and above), because we work with old computers.  Any technology products could help the students to learn about electronic products: for example: computers, tablets, telecommunications.”

By helping this school, Silicon Power has given Spanish youth the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed. We look forward to further helping Tirant Lo Blanc and other organizations that need our assistance.

Xavier Gregori would like to thank Marta Lopez, who read his letter and helped out. He would also like to thank Silicon Power for helping his school.
