Despite the best of efforts of many persons, we still have not been able to get a strong enough internet signal in Purushila. Our hope was that with the internet, the students of all ages could see pictures, read, do research, see examples, etc. of the things that they are studying. We have not given up!
Today we had a minor victory. Dr. Anne had the idea that we could use a camera to video a YouTube presentation as it played on a computer with internet access, then upload the video from the camera to a computer, save the video on a flashdrive and upload it to the Dell computers, save the video to the Dell computers and show them without needing internet. This is the simplified version of hours of work by a non-tech person! My hope is to show a video of the Spanish alphabet with one of the six-year olds tomorrow. Thank you, Anne!
Lots of wonderful things happened today. Ismael and Orfe were in Mango with the women working with food. Ismael then went to El Chal where work was being done on the floor of the birthing center. Orfe found herself with a group of women and children in Purushia in the afternoon, and I was with students in Purushila most of the day as well.
Here are a few shots of the students in the afternoon extracurricular class. Enjoy!
