Today we have been able to train Amudat Secondary School Students how to signup and operate personal email accounts. A School of over 400 students, none of them has an email address. Though there some computers, students have no access as all computers broke down and there is no technician in the area to help them. This school is found in Karamoja which is over 400 miles from Kampala Capital city (Capital of Uganda). This is mostly a pastoral community and the only way this community can be helped is to be connected to the world wide web. Good enough, there is both G3 and G4 Internet network.
At the just concluded 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit at Stanford University, Silicon Valley, USA; networking was made smart. All the participants were given Poken Networking Tools simply to speed up their networking activities in a free and open environment.
What is Poken Networking tool?: It is an interactive USB stick which glows when you touch it to someone else’s – just like exchanging a digital business card. This tool collects Digital Content and Contact information from say conference attendees, exhibitors, etc.

This is what is really happening during our weekly Mobile Solar computer Class Training meetups for poor children attending school in rural communities here in Uganda. A possible sponsorship from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin, Texas, USA is really making it possible for these poor children also have a chance to touch a computer; Thank you so much Bluebonnet for the continued support which enable us to reach over 100 children every week.
Thank you our Partner Maendeleo Foundation-Uganda for providing Solar Mobile Computer Classrooms which enable even those who don’t have access to electricity to also have a chance to enjoy computer technology within their reach and at such an affordable cost. Below is what is happening in photos
