Featured photo – no.4

This photo was taken in August 2019, in the kitchen at my home. It features my youngest son, Daniel, then aged 17.

Daniel was helping by adding software and anti-virus protection to all 10 machines we were sending to Pakati schools.

I had just recently collected the donations on computers for Pakati schools from the Stephenson Group Ltd of Leeds – see their website https://www.stephensonpersonalcare.com  for more details about the company.

The Author with Stuart Pine, IT manager at the Stephenson Group holding one of the computers they donated to Friends of Pakati in July 2019.

Dan had accompanied me when I drove to Leicester to ship the equupment to Zimbabwe….

…and had been an active participant in the sponsored walk we did to raise money towards the cost of the shipping of the goods.

Those items were successfully presented to the schools for use in September 2019….

…and we are intending to repeat the process as soon as we can!

This year we are getting another donation of computers – we think 20 – from the same company, the Stephenson Group from Leeds.

To help us ship the new equipmemt to Pakati, please give what you can to http://Paypal.me/friendsofpakati and if asked, use the email address friendsofpakati@gmail.com
