Computer Corner

Started the day at the “Indian Computer Centre” where we picked up some nice desks for the new computers that we have installed in the poor school in Sawai Madhpur. I went by jeep and was told to wait 5 minutes – 5 Indian stretchable minutes later (half an hour) the guys arrived and put the desks plus one new computer on the jeep and off we went.

Until now the computers have been on rickety tables so we have tidied

Before

things up and created a Computer corner in the school which should prove to be a great place for the school kids to learn and make use of the 3 computers. I am very pleased with it all.

Computer Corner Now

Not only was I pleased with the look of the new computer corner but even more pleasing was the way the children went up to the computers and started using them and were obviously comfortable with it.

When I installed the first computer there over a year ago, those kids had never seen or touched a real computer before and now they all look so proficient with it all. It put my mind at ease and was a very satisfying moment for me as there had always been a doubt in my mind as to whether the computers were beneficial to the children and whether they were being put to good use. It all seemed so worthwhile and those who have donated can now know that their generosity has made a difference to these kids. Amazing, incredible.
I went back to the hotel and returned with my latest group. They thoroughly enjoyed the visit to the school.
