Meeting with Pueblo West High School Principal Martha Nogare

L2L Director Sherrie Howey met with Martha Nogare on June 27th. 
Here are notes from that meeting:
  • Pueblo West High School (PWHS), with the approval of the Board of Education, is donating 25 to 50 Dell Latitude D630 laptops to the L2L project.
  • The computers are to be used for schools in the Nohana Mission.  This includes Nohana Primary School and Nohana Secondary School.  (Sherrie did not ask yet if that also includes Kokobe Primary. 
  • Principal Nogare made clear that this is happening because of Matlabe and that PWHS wants 'his' kids to benefit.   
  • The laptops will be picked up from PWHS by L2L on Wednesday July 11th.
  • The money the PWHS students have already donated to L2L ($717.16) is to be used for shipping. They have raised an additional $357.89, as yet to be delivered to L2L, and they want it to be used for shipping as well. They really want to be sure the computers get to the schools.
  • Principal Nogare understands that the computers won't be sent to Lesotho until L2L raises enough money to install solar power to charge the PWHS laptops.  Until the solar power system is in place, the laptops will be stored in  the U.S.
