Many Children in Ethiopia Simply want Books and Pens
April 11, 2019 By Paul Swider
After a quick flight from Lalibella and a dusty taxi ride we finally arrived in Axum, Ethiopia. Later today we’ll head off to the mountains and remote villages where we hope to see more amazing sites and along the way continue to help children when we can. We have created a contact list using an Ipad and Colligo Briefcase software. The list of names will allow for follow up with the children when we return. I have already received email from three children we met in Lalibela. The Colligo software allows me to collect the contact and details of the children without being connected to the internet. When we reach areas with internet connectivity the lists will synchronize the details with our Office 365 list. A big thank you to Colligo for making this work possible.
School supplies seem to be an easy way to make a big difference in the region. Yesterday we handed out almost 100 study exercise books to students.
