The computer labs were successfully installed in the the schools/church in the An Giang Province between April 11-20. Many teaching sessions with both the teachers and children were then conducted to show everyone how to use the computers. The children at the schools were quick learners -- and were making a wide variety of documents with word, paint and power point right away. They did creative presentations about themselves to share with each other.
The computers give them access to Wikipedia and other important resources for learning. Thanks to Google Translate, the students from Vietnam and the USA got to talk and learn more about each other.
We had a great time playing soccer and outdoor games, drawing and doing art projects, and making friendship bracelets with the children at the schools too. Much laughter and fun was had by all. It was sad to say good-bye with many wishes that we all get together again in the future.
A special thanks to our partner, the Viet Nam Scholarship Foundation for being such a great support to the TSC team, but also for the many scholarships they give to the children at these schools.
