One of the most exciting developments of the past year is the expansion of our project. We are expanding our project to include a second school. Matlabe put a lot of work and consideration into the choice of school and settled on Kokobe Primary School. Kokobe is grades 1-7 and half the size of Nohana with 200 students enrolled and three teachers. He talked to teachers and the community and made arrangements for a ceremonial start for the project. Janissa went with several teachers from Nohana and took two laptops and solar panels to Kokobe. The teachers and students were very excited and the Nohana teachers talked about how the laptops could be used and how it worked to have students take them home. Matlabe will be visiting with them and starting the process of rules and regulations with them – he has taken a lot of initiative and is handling the whole process!
