It concerns a computer project at a high school in the country side where the 85 students, in addition to their regular diploma, can get a basis diploma metal building or computer science. This computer science projects was threatened to be discontinued because the equipment had grown outdated. With 10 new computers, additional equipment and Internet, the youth are given amazing new opportunities!
The high school has a good infrastructure, a well-organized and very engaged team of teachers with a teacher in computer science present. In addition to the computer science program there is a popular technical program as well (in metalworking). Many girls take part in this as well. The youth is this mining area suddenly has an incredible amount of extra knowledge and information through the internet. A whole new world opens up for them! But that’s not all: with the diploma “computer science” their chances to get a job increase dramatically. Better chances to get better work than in the mines.
In October we have transferred the computers in person and were treated to a delicious meal. This was prepared on a grill in a corner of the church we were visiting.
