20 XO laptops on their way to Lesotho

Twenty more XO laptops, purchased with funds from a foundation which wishes to remain anonymous, began their journey to Nohana Primary School today.  The XOs will travel via USPS from Idaho to Ohio, shipping paid for by students at Pueblo West High School (Colorado).  In Ohio, Craig Balcomb, one of our volunteers, will deliver them to a group from the Springfield Rotary Club and Wittenberg University.  The group will be traveling to Lesotho later this month to do volunteer work, and they have graciously offered to carry the laptops over for us.  They will deliver them to Deepak Pullanikkatil of Maseru Rotary Club & a Peace Corps staff member.  He will hold them until they can be transported to Ketane.

Thanks to the chain of many helpful hands who are making this possible and saving us a lot of money!
