Computers 4 Learning would like to thank Lower Blue Mountains Rotary Club (District 9685) for donating laptop computers.

Always in demand & all thankful to our supporters of the project.

Everyone at Computers 4 Learning would like to Thank all who donated their Computers & their Time to make a difference in the lives of those we help.

Wishing you all a merry, happy & safe festive season : )

Thank you wishes go to Birkdale State School and Birkdale South State School for their recent generous donation of old computer hardware.
Their donations will ensure our continued supply to disadvantaged people who need access to technology for education and social contact.
Receiving this donation is a very thoughtful gesture from the school, to help our organisation continue to help others.

C4L would like to extend many thanks to the Rotary Club of Mooloolaba. A much needed donation of computers was received from Club President Geoff Hopkins, by C4L Manager Chris Johnston (2006-2019).

We aim to help the community where we can & with help from the community, we all benefit in some way. Again, many thanks.

Earlier this month Deb Singleton of Christian College, Geelong deviated from her usual flight to Timor Leste for a Teacher in a Box and some training.   Their partner school at Viqueque was the destination.  https://www.christiancollege.vic.edu.au/new/news/east-timor-friendship-projects

Thanks to the Rotary Club of Bribie Island and Assistant Governor, Wendy Scholz, Goroka is the destination for the first 2 Teacher in a Boxes to go to PNG.  This is just the start….  the club has a very strong connection with PNG through Rotarians PDG George and Mary Grant and many, many more deployments are planned for PNG.  https://www.rotarybribieisland.info/index.html

The Rotary Club of Blacktown was very pleased to advise that their Teacher in a Box deployment to Bishop Emmanuel in Monrovia, Liberia has reached its destination.

We have just been looking at the number of NEW visitors to our website over the past few months.

January : 417
February to June : Stayed around 580 each month
July : 2127 and we still have a week to go….

Happy we are!!!

President Tess of Blacktown Rotary Club launches Teacher in a Box in the Philippines.

Blacktown_Intermeros TIB Launch

President Tess (centre) is pictured here with Rotary partners from the Intramurros Rotary Club in Manila.

The Philippines have been plagued by extreme weather events in recent years with libraries being flooded, restocked and then flooded again.  A Teacher in a Box mobile server that sets up a Local Area Network (LAN) offering KA Lite (Khan Academy) and a huge library of text books and other educational and training content off-line should prove to be far easier to get to high ground at short notice.

Last weekend International Director, Pam Carne, also from the Rotary Club of Blacktown, flew in from Sydney and picked up 3 more Teacher in a Box units.  Two of these are destined for the Philippines and the other for Indonesia.  Well done President Tess, Pam and other members!! Outstanding effort!!

 

Fantastic weather and a huge turn-out.  Chris, Des and Jeanette were kept very busy telling people about what we do at Computers 4 Learning.  Lots of people showed a genuine interest and there were even some IT Managers amongst them. If just one of these organisations comes good with a large quantity of donated computers we will be VERY happy.
