Message from Tom, a student from this project who received a laptop:
"As i promised i am almost ready with the free computer packages, programming lessons and computer repair lessons i have been organizing for watoto rescue. I will cover the event and add to the website also to show labdoo that i am really doing what i was instructed to do.
Labdoo has been very helpful, i promised that i would volunteer for NGOs, Labdoo helped me in my career by giving me my first laptop.
Now i am a confident programmer,i accept mistakes and try to advance everyday. I thank you so much for giving me a chance to try out my skills.
I created facebook & twitter share buttons on blog pages,
The laptops will serve the community towards learning the use of web 2.0 It will be a tool and resource for students and community for information and research, communication and networking. Children will also be able to learn on productive educative sites and references and a tool for learning. We will also use it as a pilot project in link with the Ministry of Education- so that learning can continue out of the usual formal setting
Labdoo is changing the lives of women and girls in my village and beyond! Kisumu and Rusinga Island now have new profiles and Kakamega is joining in!
Our previous trips to a Cyber Cafe were long and far. We had to trek for miles through the scorching heat to get our fingers on the keyboards and it was expensive. So most of the time, access to computers was not possible for us.
Through the power of connection, PACHO was introduced to Labdoo and the positive impact was immediate. This power has proved unstoppable as connections continue to be made! From World Pulse to MSTERIO to Labdoo, networks and support have been created with each and every one of them contributing thoughtfully to our communities!
PACHO empowers women and girls to change their lives for the better as well as those of their children and their communities. The basis for this empowerment is skills training. For many decades, our women have been left behind and now, they are discovering that they can create the lives they want to lead. As we all develop new skills, the computers donated by Labdoo prove to be invaluable tools for us.
