Community Center at Her Farm is open

Electronic Learning Lab at Her Farm
Electronic Learning Lab at Her Farm

The community center at Her Farm is officially open, though we've still some painting and decorating to do. The electronic learning lab is a smash hit. For the first time ever, youth in the village can learn how to use a computer. Teachers from the local school are coming every day to learn as well. We have four regular computers at the moment and the most interest thus far is learning to type and using painting programs. Our fifth computer is a MacMini connected to a large screen TV that is used as part of the English language teaching at the farm and has grammar programs, word programs and teaching tools for classroom use. So far about 12 young people come every morning before school and a similar number after school each day to use the computers. Five teachers from the local school as well. 

In addition to being a great learning resource the community space has been extremely popular for FIFA World Cup. Everyone in Nepal is crazy about the game and the 42 inch LED TV has been getting a nightly workout as our neighbors gather to watch the world cup.
