As you may know, we seek out underserved, underachieving schools in one region of South Africa and explain our singular focus on education. In partnership, we then invite South African administrators, educators, parents, and students each to formulate a Top 10 Wish List that they believe will elevate the quality of learning for all. We collect the lists, eliminate items not focused on education, look for overlaps, and meet with administrators to finalize the Top 10.
The computer lab is one of the items on a South African primary school’s Top 10 Wishlist.
We are focusing on earlier items first and will turn more attention to the computer lab as time elapses. Thus far, we have raised only $100 of the $25,000 required to build the lab, so the climb will be a long and steep one.
In other words, we have a long, long way to go, but we, as always, remain hopeful, and we thank you for donating to this cause.
The accompanying photograph is of a lab we built at another school located just a few miles away from the primary school featured in this project. This is the dream for this initiative, too.
