David, Just a quick question.What was the discussion? I thought it was about assisting students in Kamukunji. Sorry if i deviated from that. I do hope you have a good party though.
Abbas I know it is under development but considering the non-digital encyclopedias i had in my former school, the offline wikipedia is far more useful than you would know. It may be irrelevant to curricula but usefull to broaden the students minds.
