    Helping the GOSH girls learn new skills

    Day 243

    Learning Together

    Yesterday in Kyangwali refugee settlement, we brought the GOSH (Girls Out Of School) girls a laptop they could use at their restaurant/training center to look up new cooking and baking techniques and manage the business. These girls, for a number of reasons, couldn’t stay in school to complete their secondary education. The GOSH program allows them to keep moving forward – learning cooking, hospitality and small business skills by running a restaurant together.

    The girls wanted the laptop so that they could continue learning about new skills, new recipes and new ways of doing things.

    There was just one problem. There are lots of girls in the GOSH program, but only one person can use a laptop at any given moment. So, they asked for our help to be able to engage more students all at once. We couldn’t get a laptop for everyone, but we could purchase a projector so that everyone could follow along together at the same time.

    “Now, if they find a new skill they want to learn, they can project the video up on the wall and everyone can try it together,” said Joseph, an ARC team member. “It’s perfect because this is meant to be a training center, after all.”

    Rose Achile and the other GOSH girls couldn’t wait to fire up the laptop, switch on the projector and start exploring and learning together.

    This change made possible by Atomic Data.
