In the Spring of 2008 I.S.A.B.T. received secured a donation of 29 G4 Mac computers and Monitors to bring to Ghana from the ITS Department of Albright College. These computers are in storage while we arrange for shipping. Expected delivery for the computers is July 2009.


Bookmaking Pilot Project in Ghana
President Thurston traveled to Ghana to start a pilot project titled, "Making Books in Ghana". Using simple technology (a laptop and printer) and special bookmaking software (RealeWriter) he worked with students to write, create, and print their own unique stories into books.
