Editing courses for the different target groups

The covered terrace around the office, where the literacy lessons were being given, is now completely closed with windows and a door. We hope to start initiation lessons at the end of September.
There is a lot of interest among school managers and teachers who want to know what a computer can do. Of course, the youth is extremely interested in following the courses as well
What still needs to happen?
The walls still need to be painted
Insulating the roof against the heat
Placing an extra solar panel
Placing two fans
Buying about 15 crutches
Purchasing a screen for projections and a blackboard
12 laptops and 12 desktops are ready to use.
Additonal work needed concerning the INFRASTRUCTURE
The heavy rains begin to destroy the foundations of the joining walls where the lateral path is situated. A concrete ditch should be dug to divert the water, which would allow the path to remain accessible for pedestrians.
The electricity pole with the meter must be moved. It is currently in the opening of the garage gate. The shop, the storage room and the garage have yet to be completed meaning the floor, the roof, the window and door levels. At the moment we are growing plants! It is necessary to place lamps on the wall of enclosure to illuminate the floor in the evening. It is necessary to install 2 large and 2 small metal gates at the enclosure. Painting and embellishment remains to be done.
