Completion of Computer Course (First Intake)

It was with jubilation when HOPE worldwide KENYA (Mombasa site) completed the training of Computer class students first intake. The course started in late May 2008 and ended on 29th Aug 2008. The student did their final exam which will be marked by an external body pending their results and certification.
Some of the students are enthusiastic and thankful for the free Computer lessons they have acquired since they would not have gotten such an opportunity due to financial constraints.

This is what Mr Stephen Kitili had to say " I really thank the management and staff of HOPE worldwide KENYA for all the support they have given me and my fellow student through this Computer Class. Now, I feel very comfortable to go for any computer related interview so that I can show what I am worth. HOPE worldwide have done the residence of Mikindani proud, if only they could know. May the almighty God bless you."

The class has been coached by Mr Nelson Ndirangu (Computer Tutor) who found the students eager to learn. This is what he had to say " When I came to HOPE worldwide KENYA (Mombasa) I was not sure how I would teach the students for their better understanding. But I was puzzled by how the students were eager to learn even more that what the syllabus dictated. They are hardworking students. I wish if the course would also have covered Technical skills such as Computer Maintenance and Networking. They really made me proud."

Currently the students have Seven Modules to learn i.e. Introduction to Computers, Windows XP, Ms Word, Ms Excell, Ms Access, Ms PowerPoint and Adobe PageMaker.

The next intake is already onboard it comprises of 30 students.
