PEN PALS, BACKPACKS & CODING: Supporting education in Sierra leone

Before this week, students at Bumpe had to carry computers on their heads from the office to the lab. Having 12 backpacks makes it safer and easy for students to carry computers.

 At the computer center, girls at Bumpe learn coding using Python Software. Students have accomplished Lesson 1, can locate a PDF book and perform the first program on Coding.

Girls recieve replies from theri pen pals in the GLI (Girls Learn Institute) chapter at the Girls Middle School in Palo Alto, CA. Students share stories about their lives and about their findings in computer studies!
