Computer Lab Generates Excitement in Saviefe-Deme, Ghana
A new computer lab is up and running in the rural village of Saviefe-Deme in Ghana. Classes are being offered for students of all ages.
The lab was created this past year by John Barber and Ghana ACT in partnership with Reader to Reader.
Reader to Reader donated refurbished Dell Optipex 720 computers and Ghana ACT transported them to Ghana and set up the lab.
This June, Reader to Reader donated three additional flat-screen monitors and we are working on donating a number of additional refurbished Dell computers.
The computer lab is located at the town’s middle school.
Reader to Reader’s Computer Donation program is run in partnership with Amherst College and provides refurbished Dell Optiplex computers and iMacs to schools and libraries throughout the United States and across the globe.
