Hats Off to Travel Medford

When Interra learned that a rebranding campaign at Travel Medford left an inventory of caps and bags that could not be used, we offered to find them a home across the ocean, somewhere far, far away.

So we sent them with Don and Jean Palease (our liaison on the Incubator Project) on their last trip to Kenya. Here's the email they sent us:

We spent the month of February in Nairobi working at St. Mary's Hospital -- we taught computer classes to Form-4 and Form-3 students at the St. Mary's High School for orphanded/abanded kids .. 

The classes(5 groups of 8)  went very well, we brought 3 older laptops with us and was able to use 1 older desktop that was there. By keeping the class size same, we were able to give each student more personal time. It was a exhausting month but most rewarding.  At the end of the sessions and just before our departure we had the classes meet for some awards .. each student got a certificate of accomplishment and the form-4 (seniors) all got Medford hats.  We left a number of additional hats to be used for award during the remainder of the school year. 

Before departure we also awarded the 3 laptops to some very special students getting ready for entering university life. We put them into the Medford carry bags for each student .. (Camera was already packed - no pictures).

We lived at a house owned by a World Health research doctor and his wife. Janet took very good care of us .. so she got a Medford hat.

The hats and bags totally added to the enjoyment of our Mission work.

Thank you for donating them to our work.

    If education gives us respect and value without demanding any expensive or difficult thing from us. Then it should also be our first and foremost duty that we give respect to the education.
