We are now back in Canada and as always it is good to see our family and friends and the beautiful coastline of BC, although we are home K.I.D.S. work and support continues over in Cambodia and Nepal. Just before we left we visited the high school where, through the generosity and support of others, we were able to provide computers for an inner city high school with over 4500 students. This school prides itself on being one of the top five schools for academic achievement in the country, thanks to a committed and dedicated staff. We started with 20 computers last year and then added another 20 at the beginning of this year.
Thanks to further donations we were able to add another 17 computers and desks for the class just before we left. The teachers and students were thrilled. The school knocked a wall out between two classrooms and made room to create a great computer lab. Learning computers can change the future of a young person by allowing them to have the skills to use computers for university as well as finding better paying employment. Computers also assist the teachers in the school to do their lesson plans.
The principal, teachers and students wanted us to thank everyone for your support and they look forward to creating one of the best computer programs in the country. Thanks everyone!!!
All the best to you and yours,
Adrianne and Rick
