Nepal..Kamundu Computer Project

Nepal1024
Namaste dear Friends, and blessings from Kathmandu.
I am writing this to let You know of the wonderful success of the laptop project we began 2 years ago.
Great thanks to all of You who have contributed to the project.
For me it is a dream come true.

So, I arrived in Nepal over 1 month ago and transported the 2 laptops(all that I am officially allowed by Nepalese Customs) up to Dhunche near the Tibet border.  I also brought 21 USB drives and 5 mouse.
The school was very pleased.  I began teaching the teachers and they were quick to appreciate advantages of using the laptops.  We were also blessed because a teacher from Singapore, Jenny, is resident at the school and she had brought projectors and 3 donated old laptops.  I converted these also to Lubuntu and the educational software, so now we have 5 usable laptops.
Also We are blessed because 3 Aussie ladies are coming over to join me here on the 15th and each are bringing 2 laptops.  Many thanks Karen, Maggi and Shanti. And a new battery for 1 of the Singapore lappies.
So the school will have 11 laptops in a week or so.
Another blessing is that an organisation in Brisbane called Nepal Australia Friendship Association (NAFA). is bringing in another 14 laptops for us, and we brought in 40 kgs of jumpers for them. NASA, in the human form of Ross Hazelwood, also donated 200 hand knitted beanies to the young children at the school.  That was fun handing them out.  So very very cute.

Yet another blessing is that Jenny is very computer literate and she has been great in introducing the students to online presentations.  The students have taken to the technology like ducks to water.  They are so keen and stay back after hours to get access to the laptops.

Believe it or not, I also did a few teaching classes here.  It was great fun.
The school suffered from the earthquake a year ago and so many of the students are living in temporary shelters and  one class is operated out of a tent.
The concrete slab is the base of the destroyed multi story classroom.
So when I return in October it would be great if we can do some fund raising for the school so that we can help them rebuild the structure and safely house the students.
Also, if You have any laptop You would like to donate that would be wonderful.
Love and blessings from Nepal.
