Computer Lab Update

Hey All,

We are about a day and half away from departing to Tangalle, Sri Lanka where we’re going to build a computer lab.  The past week has been quite chaotic trying to get all the final arrangements in place.  I am pleased to say that everything is coming to place despite a few minor delays.

I would like thank our sponsors:

  • Hewlett Packard – 20 Brand New Laptops!!
  • Microsoft Hardware – 30 Mice & 5 Web Cams!
  • Softchoice Corporation – WD MyBook 2TB NAS

With a day left, we are still expecting some more generous donations.  

Stay tuned for more updates over the next couple of days!
