● Next INITIC project: another computer lab in Dzogbegan

INITIC launched this month a new campaign to raise funds for the installation, in December 2018, of a new computer lab -- the 4th! This time, it will set up in the village of Dzogbegan, on the Danyi plateau -- a few hundred meters away from the two famous monasteries.

The new computer lab will benefit the youth and teachers of the local Middle School (CEG), and will also be accessible to all other Middle and High Schools located in the vicinity.

The budget for the new infrastructure is estimated at 5500€, excluding the building work (masonry, carpentry, welding...) which must be taken care of by the local community.

A specific request from the local traditional Authorities, under the leadership of Chief Detti, initiated the project. The INITIC team visited Dzogbegan in July. Then an important delegation from Dzogbegan travelled to Kuma Tokpli and, in August, 5 Middle School teachers came back to Tokpli for a 4 day training on the Raspberry Pi.

Four Raspberry Pi workstations have been sent to Dzogbegan, making it possible for teachers to continue their discovery of the computer. Our objective is to set up a full computer lab, with 21 Raspberry Pi workstations, in the village, next December.

Once again, we are assisted in this effort by the Belgian charity Enfance Tiers Monde, who published a special September Bulletin dedicated to the new INITIC project. We are very grateful to them for their continuous support over these past few years.

Our big THANK YOU also goes to all of you who are willing to support this new project!

As always, the money collected during this fundraising campaign will go entirely and exclusively to the project itself ; all travel and accommodation fees are always covered entirely by the members of the INITIC team themselves.  

Chief Detti guides us through a visit of the local school building
 that should hosts the next INITIC computer lab in Dzogbegan.
