WHAT SHOULD BE NEW?
According to a recent UNESCO study, 57 Million children lack classroom “access”. Here are just two countries that over a MILLION “school-less children”:
1.6 Million in India
1.7 Million in Ethiopia
TEF (THE ERMA FOUNDATION) would like to provide individual learning materials to each household (in India/Ethiopia) where a child is NOT attending school.
Are there teaching computers/learning computers and teaching tablets/learning tablets that work….
(a) With electricity (a plug in learning computer/learning tablet).
(b) With electricity and and wireless router(the internet service would be FREE).
(c) With batteries (rechargeable batteries that would be collected and exchanged on a monthly basis).
MY 2ND QUESTION:
How can “learning computers/learning tablets” be distributed to 1,000,000 (school-less)children in India/Ethiopia?
(a) Corporations buy them (at a tax write off) and give them away.
(b) Foundations buy them (at a tax write off) and give them away (holding fundraisers if necessary).
(c) American Families “adopt-a-student” wherein the American family would pay for the “learning computer” or the “learning tablet” and the batteries and the shipping (at a tax write off of course).

TO MY FRIENDS AND FANS:
Do understand that I, Renee Ashley Baker, will not, NOT be “working in showbusiness” for 2 reasons:
1. I have a physical injury from which I need to “recover”.
2. I am expecting an “out of court settlement” in the amount of $20 Million to $25 Million Dollars and I will be “moving to New York” to throw cocktail parties and to “become a New York Socialite”. And In 2015 I will be moving to Paris France to launch “Erma French Perfume and Design” hopefully with the Wertheimers.
Also…. 3. It is my relatives CL and Miguel (not Renee Ashley Baker) who is in the movie industry and who is in the music industry. And this–is how it is going to stay.
Also…4. Either I, Renee Ashley Baker, “cast/hire” who I want to or I, Renee Ashley Baker, don’t work….(Tom Cruise would have been my choice…Surprise !….Surprise !).
