I just wanted to share with you one of the highlights from my recent trip to Daylight earlier this month. It was wonderful. Larry Vukov and Rod Brown from Autumn Ridge in Rochester, MN, and Pastor Cader Howard and Steve Spark from First Presbyterian in Stillwater joined me.
We were able to take the school three new computers.
Cader set up a computer lab for the kids and they were unbelievably excited and cute. The first day, they typed their names and-using the Daylight projector-see it on the wall. They all cheered each time someone was successful.
By the end of the week, the kids in the upper classes were able to type paragraphs and make corrections to punctuation and capitalization.
At one point, Cader left the room. He then heard music. The kids had been able-on their own-to access the music files on the computer and make it play.
Kizito-the new headmaster-explained that Kenya has a program to provide a laptop to every first grader in the government schools. Kizito said that “Daylight is ahead of the country.” His goal is to have Daylight be the best school in the region and he thinks we are well on the way to achieving that.
