Road trip to northern villages
Never knowing what will happen until it happens
To be able to go to all nine schools in one week instead of three we had to split up. So on Wedsneday 3:30 AM, Joel and I left Oskar alone in Windhoek and began an adventurous 900 km long journey to the north of Namibia. Susan of Star for Life drove ahead of us, […]

Waiting for the computers
Hello! Finally we have some good news to tell you – we have gotten a go ahead from the ministry! We had the final meetings with the ministry in the beginning of the week, where it was decided that we can take the computers to the schools if they have the […]
The computers have been sent!!
Our first day began with being picked up by a sweet Life Skills Couch from Star for Life called Anneli. We were brought to the office to meet the rest and plan the start of our mission. (In Namibia the schools have a subject called life skills – cooool.) The city of Windhoek is quite […]
CESA @ REACT
The 200 computers have now been picked up by the shipping company and are on their way to Namibia! DHL are sponsoring the shipment, big thanks to you ♥. Hopefully the computers will arrive before we do, and hopefully the customs procedure will go smoothly. Only laptops this year –> much smaller freight! See you!

Rekindling e-man’s Sponsorship
Things are starting to get serious. One hundred computers were today delivered by Gothenburg City Västra Hisingen to our garage. This means that the project enters a more technical phase. We have started to create USB-sticks with which we can soon begin to install Offline Wikipedia and other educational software (Edubuntu) on the computers. This is the first […]
