    Signing Off for Now
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Director
    Well, we are going to have to put this project on the back burner for now for failure to progress. It is really a project that is secondary to our organization's focus and we are unable to dedicate much time to fundraising for it. Funds raised have allowed for different works to be done on the building for the internet...

    Only as Strong as Your Leader
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Overseer
    There is, again, not much to report for the internet center, mainly because of the continued absence of Peralta, the man who founded and heads up the community development organization that the internet center will go to serve. He continues to spend weeks at a time outside of the community in order to work, and comes for a...

    Waiting on the Leadership
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Overseer
    We have 6 desktop computers in our possession in the US, donated by a global computer company called CSC. We had hoped to use perhaps 3 of them to start the Saman Internet Center, but we still have absent leadership that will cause us to have to use these computers for other purposes, then solicit more in the future...

    Support Available, It's Almost Show Time!
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Overseer
    We now have an IT expert, Rob, volunteering here with us. He was able to display his skills as soon as he arrived by fixing my two CPUs which conveniently both would not turn on as soon as he got here. It seems as though something happened with the Windows operating system in both of them, so he downloaded an operating...

    Hoping to Get Things off the Ground Soon
    By - Caitlin McHale - Project Esperanza director
    It has been 6 months since the internet center building was completed by Dartmouth students and no more advancements have been made due to two factors. First, no equipment has been donated and no further funds have been donated. Second, Peralta, the leader of the ODHS, the community development organization heading up this...

    Slow Progress..But Progress
    By - Caitlin McHale - Director
    There has been some progression with the Saman Internet Center since the last update, but not much. There has been some plumbing work done as well as a toilet installed in the apartment upstairs. I think this is okay because meanwhile the community development organization that is meant to manage this internet center is...

    Little by Little
    By - Caitlin McHale - Director
    There has not been much development with the Saman Internet Center over the past few months and it is mainly due to lack of funds. We just received the funds that were donated through GlobalGiving this past week. Peralta, the man in charge of the project, would rather wait until funds accumulate as well to take care of...
