Advance Africa recently arranged a generous donation of 11 personal computers on behalf of Highlands Trout in Lesotho. The units consist of a CPU, a screen, keyboard, mouse and complete Open Office software. The computers are internet ready, have a DVD player and a sound card.
The computers have been distributed to the following community members: Chief Mary Matheko Mot’soene: Me’ Mary is the only female Chief in the Katse area and is now receiving advanced computer training from the Highlands Trout staff. She has said that the computer will transform her administration functions in running and managing her community and has been trying to get a computer for this for several years now. Her gratitude is clear in these pictures!!!
Moses Kotelo: Mr Kotelo runs a computer training course in the Katse village for anyone that wishes to attend but he does focus on the very young children of the area. To date, his two computers he has been using are still the version with the small screen that has green text and DOS operating system. These new replacement units will now provide the modern touch and allow the students to learn with updated technology from a young age.
Katse High School
The Katse High School has planned a computer centre for some years now. They have recently managed to build a new class room to house the computer laboratory and Highlands Trout assisted last year with some furniture donations to the laboratory. It is wonderful to see the completion with the new computers being installed and the student’s joy at being able to strive for computer literacy.
In addition to the computers, Advance Africa also arranged for the donation of 30 steel beds and mattresses on behalf of Highlands Trout that were donated to the Katse High School for their dormitory.
Advance Africa & Highlands Trout – moving forward with the Katse community!
