A long time ago, in the little town of Jinja, in our first year there, 3 schools each were given 5 XO computers and 2 XO tablets. However, each classroom boasts an average of 50 students! To top that, these "gadgets" are put in a closet for the entire school to use. Clearly, while this is better than nothing, it is truly not enough to bring 21st century learning to the children. Please visit the XO LaptopPage to learn more about these amazing machines.
WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY!
It is now 2017and our last trip to Uganda was amazing! We now have 6 schools on board and one hospital/community center. Each of them, except for New Victory which is new to us, has approximately 5 – 10 XO Laptops and 10 XO tablets. Teachers have been trained in their use but it is an ongoing endeavor. Each school also now has a PC and a projector. This improvement was made possible by generous donations. Visit the 2016 blog to get a more detailed view of what we accomplished. Proud we are!
