Hilltop Volunteer New Assignment
2014-02-26 07:26 by Robin Roberts
It has been a great pleasure to established a computer centre at the Daily Chidren's home in East London where we have installed 15 computers supplied by Linux 4 Afrika. Jakob Kaiser from IJGD an organization based in Germany has been place there. Jakob was recently placed at the Daily Bread to teach and oversee the computer centre with the main beneficaries being the children. They are currently being assisted with special programmes in Maths and English, Typing Tutor and Computer Literacy skills.
Jakob has approached this assignment with great enthusiasm. He remains associated to the Dimbaza centre, currently his volunteers services have been extended from the centre to the childrens home as apart of the centres outreach programme.

Our 8 year old Anita has gone to live at Daily Bread where there are 60 other children with a primary school on site and where she will recieve special counselling from resident social workers at the home. It has been great to have Anita Hilltop who is such a wonderful child with such a brillant personality. It has been said to see her go but felt it was the best in terms of her special needs. We look forward to seeing her grow and flourish in the future.
Thank you Linux 4 Afrika!

We have just received computers from Linux 4 Africa in Germany! The shipment contained many computers, TFT screens and thin clients, as well as many useful components. With this new shipment it is possible for us to set-up new computer centres in the Eastern Cape!
A team of 11 people, comprised of 4 staff and 7 local villagers where involved to assist with the unloading and unpacking of the equipment. All inventoried and stocked controlled by the team to insure excellent organization and tracking of this quality equipment.
A big thank you to all of the people in Germany that worked for so many months with this enormous effort for Hilltops computer programme.
We are so pleased and this will take us a lot further to achieving our goals! Expanding the our scope with new computer centres for children and adults to learn computer literacy and IT technology skills in village and township locations.
Many thanks to the Linux 4 Africa team!
