Hello Nice people,

It is really reassuring when you receive that phone call from someone with
thirst for free knowledge which is the main mission of Wikimedia.

One teacher from a school that benefited from the Wikipedia for Schools
pilot that was accomplished in Mombasa, Kenya, gave a call to Bruce (Member
of WMKE) and she requested for a copy of the DVD plus the manual of how to
make the offline package functional. She had misplaced the copy we left
after the pilot and she would like a new copy to install in new computers
that the school acquired recently.


It is very satisfying to learn that someone found the package useful. I
will be sending her a copy during the week plus a manual via a courier
service since she availed the school’s mailing address.


At this point, I think it is wise for her school to partake in the story
telling tour that will be executed by Victor Grigas who will be visiting
Kenya after Wikimania.


Regards,

Stephen.


PS: Dennis, How far have you reached with the Syllabus you were working on?
