Updates from the deployments in Ghana

I mentioned in my Ghana trip summary blog post that the deployment of and training for the 100 Edubuntu computers shipped over would be continued by volunteers from Africa ICT Right.

I’m happy to report that Daniel Kwaku Ganyoame has been keeping us updated with progress and has been sending photos!

On Tuesday, 30th Oct. 2012, Madina No.1 school pick up their computers from Pig Farm at 2pm.

On Wednesday, 31st Oct. 2012, Gomoa East also came for their computers from Pig Farm at 3:15pm.

On Thursday, 1st Nov. 2012, West Gonja also came for their computers from Pig Farm around 4:30pm.

We have been providing training for Jubilee Int. Church volunteers for the past three (3) days. The volunteers are 11 in number. We will conduct the last training for the Pig Farm site on Sunday from 1pm to 5pm.

Classroom for training at Jubilee International

On Sunday 4th Nov., we organize our last training session in Pig farm with the support of two volunteers from the Accra Linux User Group.

Today, Monday 5th Nov., we donated 10 computers to Madina No.1 School and also set up their lab for them. We will start with the training from tomorrow.

Madina receives their computers!

We have so far train 13 teachers from Madina Demonstration JHS as well as 14 trainers from Jubilee International church.

We will be continuing with our training at Madina since the teachers have show more interest in the program.

We were quite disappointed that the shipping issues caused us to be unable to be around to help on the ground with these deployments, so it’s really exciting to get these pictures and see things progressing well.
