|One Laptop Per Child Computing Lab, just for kids. Mostly boys in this photo, but we'll work on getting the girls involved, too.! The Leif Pederson Internet Café (for adults) has also been moved to this location, and can be seen in the background|
|Peter, who learned OLPCs when he was living at the WHH Children's Home (now a high school student) is the part-time "teacher" during his school break. Here he uses a projector to demonstrate the many educational activities geared to young children|
|WOW!!! It's absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!|
|"Mr. Gad" starts her up!! Luckily he has been riding motorcycles for some time, since the library used an ordinary motorcycle for a couple of years before it died and now has been replaced with this van. He looks happy!!|

We extend our heartfelt thanks to those who helped us create the Children's Computing Lab. All of the OLPCS have been donated over the years (if you have one, you know who to contact!!). Thank you,
---to those who donated funds to create the lab (paint, tables, electrical connections, etc.)
---to the original creators of the OLPCs who mostly donated their time and incredible technical expertise and continue to do so
---to those who have donated children's books (some 5,000 now)
---to Ebby who helps us ship books
---to folks in Ghana who deliver the books from the port to Axim
---to Librarian Mercy Ackah whose leadership in Axim really launched this project. Mercy is now directing the Takoradi Library, of which the Axim Library is a branch.
---to the devoted, creative, energetic leaders of Western Heritage Home who have ideas and when helped, get them DONE!!!
We feel helpless here in the US, but we are with them in spirit and in our prayers.
