Getting Lesotho Textbooks

Aaron has promised to check on getting us some Lesotho 6th grade school textbooks so we can start incorporating the curriculum into the laptop training plans. He's going to the school today and will see if the school has any extras which he can mail to us. If not, hopefully he'll be able to find some in Maseru when he goes there in a week or so.

Thanks for looking into this, Aaron!

Number of XO laptops - readjusted

The last time I gave you a count of the number of XO laptops I had acquired, I said we were up to 64. That was counting 11 I had ordered but had not received yet. Unfortunately, the order for the 11 XO laptops fell through, so we are back down to 53. We have enough for all the 6th grade students and teachers, but we still need to get more for the other grades to share.

I'll keep looking for good deals and buying more XOs as I can.
