COMPUTER PROJECT REPORT:
13 Computer Workstation Lab Up and Running!
Internet with WIFI Installed
Still needed: Internet fees
The September 2010 KUEF service trip to Meru included three members of the KUEF Computer Advisory Committee, Jim Sterken, Marianne Clauw and Jim Jeffries. They partnered with local Meru technology services to oversee the installation of high speed internet and a 13 workstation computer laboratory at BLISS. In addition they installed two printers, a projector, surge protectors, battery backup and a WIFI wireless transmitter. Moses Marete recruited six recent Bliss graduates to assist with the installation. These student had the opportunity to be mentored by our computer experts.

This extraordinary project opens up a world of education and teaching collaboration opportunities to the BLISS students, teachers and the community. The project will be completed in 2011 with the addition of several more workstations and laptops.
BLISS graduates set up computer workstations under the guidance of Jim Sterken and Jim Jeffries.
One of the classrooms at BLISS was transformed into the new computer lab. Additional classrooms are needed. Currently, they have asked for an Administration Block to free up rooms for more classes. The Administration Block would house the school office, teachers' preparation room and counseling offices.
