Dear AfricAid supporters,

Happy 2013 to you!  I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your amazing support to bring computer labs to secondary schools in northern Tanzana.  The computer labs enable a whole community to learn life-changing computer skills and provide valuable opportunities to learn and grow.

We are able to install a computer lab for just $5,000 U.S. using innovative technology that uses a desk-top as a server to run 10 independent work stations.  We also run our labs on Linux to avoid problems with viruses that cripple many computer labs in Africa.

In 2012, we completed 5 new labs.  We are planning 3 for the first half of 2013.

Asante sana for your support!
