I am excited to report that in May, Phillip Sholes and I had the opportunity meet some of the beneficiaries who had received computer training provided partly from funds donated by you, our GlobalGiving Donors.  We met the youths and young adults at the AIDSL office in Freetown, Sierra Leone.  AIDSL is doing an excellent job motivating and working with them.

During the visit we heard their stories on how the training had been beneficial to them.  It was great to hear how excited and appreciative they were.  Getting such training for free is next to impossible and we are so happy that we were able to provide this for them.

Video story - Go with us through video to Freetown.  Please take a moment to see and hear the excitement in Hannah voice's and face - just as we heard and saw it.  It was heart-warming to know we made a definite difference.  We helped enhance her skill level and her life.

We are looking forward to providing additional training shortly and welcome your donations that will help us make a difference in the lives of many more youths and young adults.  Thanks for your support
