An Icelandic company, Tengill ehf., donated over 90 computers to ABC children's aid. They were sent to our school in Burkina Faso and today the students over there have begun their computer studies.
The computers were shipped from Iceland to Jacob's Well in Hull, England, where they were transported in a container to Burkina Faso. The director of Tengill ehf expressed his interest in ensuring these computers would serve a function after an elementary school had renewed all their computers. Since there were no empty spaces in our school in Burkina Faso, a room was created where students have been learning auto shop and carpentry.
Gully, one of two team leaders in Burkina Faso, is extremely pleased at having these computers. "We're very grateful and this really takes us to another level", she says.
