Computer lab progress update

This past weekend Terry and Jan attended the Rotary District 5040 conference in Whistler BC where some 500 Rotarians, spouses, Rotary Interactors (high school Rotary club members) and Rotary Exchange Students attended.

As part of the conference, Terry and Jan worked at the Poster Showcase sessions where they shared information about the 1300 solar light project for Kyaithani cluster students and about the computer labs for Kyaithani and Lower Yatta Secondary Schools.

Terry highlighted the support that we are getting from the Kenya Connect people both in Maryland and in Wamunyu Kenya.

We are glad to report that we now have two Aleutia computers operational at the Kenya Connect Learning Resource Centre in Wamunyu and that James and Patrick from Kenya Connect are working on updating their training materials to reflect our new computer hardware and software.

We have on order all the equipment required for the two computer labs.  We expect both labs to be installed during July and training for the 20 secondary school teachers will be done in August.
