A great time was had by all at our first Paint and Sip Fundraiser to benefit the educational program at Kokobe Primary School. The event raised over $1600. and the proceeds will be used to purchase Kindle Fires for the classroom.

So many have worked hard to make this classroom/library a reality. Thank you to all of our donors! Thank you to Florence and Mme Alice for coordinating everything for us in Lesotho. Our builder has come through as promised. We even have solar power so they have electricity in the building. We are in the home stretch but we are not done yet. The final touches are being put on the building, desks are being delivered, and the library is being coordinated and hopefully will be operational by spring when a team of Laptops to Lesotho educators will visit if travel restrictions are lifted. We are working to purchase the Kindle Fires and are making final decisions on the server we will use to supply the educational information for the students and teachers. In a year that seems to be filled with bad news, this is certainly a bright spot for us.

While sometimes we want to progress more quickly we know it takes time to advance towards what will be. We must remove roadblocks, plan carefully, and collaborate. Behind the scenes, the collaboration with Arizona State University and its SolarSPELL project is already showing the benefits of working with this proven team. SolarSPELL Technology Building plans are progressing with plans for the classroom/library/computer lab coming together. Contracts are being finalized and a timeline is being created. A teacher strike halted progress for a period of time but the project is back on track.
If you would like to contribute to the advancement of this project please click on the link below. A $50 contribution will purchase a Kindle Fire or 5 library books.
Thank you for your support. We will keep you informed as we progress on this wonderful project. https://www.gofundme.com/f/j78s5-education-for-all
