The New Computer Lab

It is time to break out the hardware and we are shown to the computer lab that members of the community have constructed in anticipation of the computer donation. It is a long, low building attached to a row and classrooms and the Headmaster and teachers are clearly proud of what they’ve put together, the locking case to hold the computers, the long row of counters and stools which will become their first computer terminals, the windows specially built to keep out dust. There are apologies for the fresh paint that comes off on our hands and clothes.

Jane and I open up the computers and everyone gets a first look.

We attempt to explain the internet, from scratch.

I anoint Kenya's first iMentor instructor.

And then we are rushed off, before maybe we have that internet explanation nailed down. We are told that we are "wanted in the hall."
