Ndola, Zambia

June 6, 2017

You Assist recently made another donation to the Dag Hammarskjöld School in the form of a desktop computer. As is usually the case, the Ndola Mukuba Rotary Club took care of everything in our absence. They purchased the computer and organized the handover ceremony.

For those who don’t know much about the school….

There are about 600 students, grades 1 through 9 at the Dag Hammarskjöld School which is located close to Ndola in the northern parts of Zambia.

The school gets its name from Dag Hammarskjöld, the United Nation’s second Secretary General whose plane crashed in September 1961 while he was on route to a ceasefire negotiation. As a matter of fact, the school is very close to the crash site.

The lack of electricity has been an issue but this no longer seems to be the case. Therefore, we decided to forge ahead and see how it works out with this computer. In other words, we are not planning on stopping at one computer.

While “friendship needs no words” as Dag Hammarskjöld would have said, we still want to extend a big thank you to our friends and trusted partners at the Ndola Mukuba Rotary Club.  Thank you again for all your help.

Below are some pictures from the handover ceremony.
