      Hi friends,
      We really are very sorry for we were unable to join the chat this afternoon as agreed. There are many many problems down here that made this impossible to communicate with you today. First, there was no access to the facilities as the system administrator Cizor disappeared dispite having informed him and the college authorities of our meeting today. The college principal was also not cooperative and the college administrator, Sr. Euphemia was not around.
      Actually the principal claimed not to be aware that we were supposed to be around today as  according to her we have already spent all the money that was paid during the training workshop.

      Actually as David has already mentioned, we are in real need of our own information center (ICT center) where our schools ie teachers,students and the community at large can access information.

      We did meet the local educational authorities as David has mentioned to you all, and they are out to work with us, and we hope all you friends and other collaborators will also come in and assist us realise our dream. We will be meeting the DEO this coming wednesday 31st october 2007 to discuss further on this issue.

      All the same teachers are really commited to this project and are working to see it succed.
       Our next meeting will be on the 30th Nov 2007 at 2.00pm kenyan time and probably be able to chat if all goes well.

      with warm regards.

      Dear Pam, Andrius, Maria, TT Kenya and all our friends,
      I also report to you that i have been unable to access the chat  for the meeting today, same message comes as Andrius.
      Please because of the teachers who have traveled from far and have taken time out of office we can try yahoo messenger, i understand we all have expectations and left our important activities.

      I had a meeting with TT kenya coordinating team on wednesday, they are really facing problems with the center they usually meet, this are thay dont have authority over the place, internet connectivity is slow, they experience power cuts, its far from most of the schools, head teachers cant give permission to attend meetings because it is exerm time in Kenya and can't have certainity about planning for meetings.... i booked an appointment with the District Education Officer the same day to discuss these problems but with the team were able to meet his deputy, a meeting on wednesday next week was scheduled -31st OCT.

      We hope to discuss issues around collabolations in establishishing a Community Learning,Informatio n and Communication Center at Kangundo that can ennable teacher access the facilities, ICT enabled trainings, supply of ICT equipment to schools and communities in the area and facilitate other ICT enabled projects, this will be the first project in the district.

      COL that supported TT Kenya is willing to support more ICT enabled projects if we can build collaborations and networks, i appeal to our friends in this thread and others to look into this project and give their support and i personally assure you that you will never be dissapointed.

      pls join us to make a change for the better.

      With warm regards,
