Anticipating a Second Workshop

We are looking forward to a second laptop workshop, this one at Mission of Hope International in Grand Goave, Haiti next week. (March 25th to March 28th) There will be morning lessons from 9- 11am and afternoon classes from 1-3pm. (http://mohintl.org)

Mission of Hope is extremely excited about the upcoming event. This – from their web site (March 17):fb23

Today I had the privilege of meeting with our friends from Child in Hand and One Laptop per Child.  In just over a week, a team from OLPC will be coming to train twenty of our students on laptops.  I’m so excited – you have NO idea!!!  One of the things that they may be learning about is investigative reporting – using the laptop to take pictures and make a cartoon of a story they witnessed.  Perhaps the children at MOHI will one day be publishing a newspaper for the school or maybe even for the city.  How cool is that?  I really appreciated the conversations I had with Adam Holt, the country director for Haïti.  It was obvious to me that he wasn’t a novice in international affairs and working within the Haitian culture.  I am looking forward to the training and working with OLPC long-term.

There will be 18 children, ages 7-16, from the MOH center, and also 2 other children, ages 8-9, from the Be Like Brit Organization. (http://belikebrit.org)

Grand Goave can be found on this map, west of Port-au-Prince.
