First Donation to my first elementary school - October, 2009
First started as a trial to see if the intended computer helps elementary schools and high schools located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The first project was setup at my first elementary school called Prince Wesen Seged School, and now the name is changed to Yekatit 23 Secondary School. When I attended the school was teaching students from first to six grade only, and now it teaches 9 and 10 grade students. This school have a computer room facility and the room is full of old computers and none of them work and are outdated. The electriccity in the room does not even work, and I found that when I try to set up my first donation. The school administrative finally offered the library room until they fix the electric city issue. The computer that I donated was, one PC loaded with linux operating system called UBUNTU. The computer uses law watt and was made to handle heat and dust. This one computer can be set up for 10 users and all users can accesses any documents they want and be able to work and use the computer at the same time with out any speed problem. The application called was intended for this purpose, and I was learning about this application for two years and I found it to be approprate for a country like mine and Africa in General. Most of all the total cost for this product is below $2000.00 including shipments. I setup for four users and I am working on my second donation for my high school which was named Prince Mekonen and now it is called Addis Ketema.
The computer will be for 6 users and a printer will be added as well as educational software, internet communication tools such as SKYPE to be able to communicate to students and teachers. The computer also will have a remote software to trouble shoot incase of some technical issues.
