With mixed emotions saying our final goodbyes to the school and Swaziland and our driver friend Nhlanhla (pronounced something like “tchan-cha”). We had a very successful project, where it was amazing and very rewarding to see how far along we were able to bring the teachers and kids (most of whom had never touched a PC before) in just 9 days. We left them with training and sustainability plans to integrate computers into their lesson plans and keep the momentum going.
Four of us moved on to a fantastic week of vacation in South Africa, where we went to the Blyde River Canyon, Kruger National Park, and Cape Town. Ping us about those if you’re interested.
