Kramden Laptops Distributed in Zambia
Last fall, Kramden worked with the East Chapel Hill Rotary Club and sister club Rotary Club of Lusaka to distribute laptops in Zambia.
Over the years, the Rotary Club of Lusaka has helped the Chipapa Secondary School in Lusaka, Zambia by providing textbooks and solar lamps to aid the students’ studies. After learning from the Headmaster that the school had recently been supplied with electricity but were now in need of computers, the club reached out to their sister club in Chapel Hill to see if they could be of assistance.
With Kramden’s help, the East Chapel Hill Rotary Club was able to bring 35 refurbished laptops to Zambia in October. One laptop was donated to BirdWatch Zambia, a local environmentally-focused entity promoting environmental awareness in schools in Zambia, and the remaining 34 laptops were provided to students at the Chipapa Secondary School.
Kramden recently received an email from Lusaka, praising the “huge success of the project”.
“The teachers and students of Chipapa Secondary school are most grateful for the laptops. I sure you will agree that it is impossible to teach computer and IT studies, which is now in the National Curriculum, without having computers to use!”PP Hebert – Rotary Club of Lusaka
Kramden has partnered with the East Chapel Hill Rotary club in previous years to distribute computer equipment outside of the US — once in Nicaragua, and twice in Costa Rica.
