Rwanda Visit – Day 11


Selecting computers for YEGO’s Computer-Assisted Learning program.

Shopping for computers

Today was computer-shopping day, African-style. After visiting a couple of shops to compare products and prices, the word was out. By the time the YEGO group got to the third shop, a proprietor from a few blocks away approached them to come to his shop.

Pascal (the teacher) picked the computers, Carolyn agreed, Emmanuel and Divine set the budget, and when all that was in place, Athanasie stepped in as the chief negotiator. They managed to get a good price and all went away happy.

There are now desks and computers at the Yego Centre. Hopefully all will be up and running on Wednesday for the official opening with the mayor.
