Thank you - project complete

Thank you all very much for your kind donations, thanks to which we have now completed our ICT room at Simbi Secondary School. 

We used the money from the GlobalGiving donations to first secure the room so that the technology would be safe inside. We were able to put up solar powered security lights to both protect the room and offset the electricity costs of the machines. We then purchased the computers and a router so the school can access the internet. Now the ICT room has 9 computers for the students to use, along with a TV and projector that the school already had. We also bought a whiteboard, something all of the teachers really wanted. We spent time downloading offline resources, such as offline Wikipedia, as well so that the students will be able to obtain information without the school having to pay for internet.

On the 30th August, with all the pieces in place, we organised an ICT training day for the teachers to show them how to incorporate the new resources in their lessons. The positive feedback was overwhelming. The headteacher even called this project a dream come true! 

The Vihiga County governor was impressed by our work, and promised to donate 2 more computers to the school.

We are now planning to inaugurate the room amongst the students with a karaoke session.  

We hope that the ICT room will allow the students to have a more enriched learning experience at school. The computer laboratory represents an opportunity to develop ICT skills and consequently have more post-secondary opportunities available to them. Thanks for your trust and support in contributing to the project.
