President of the US Paradise 4 Kids charitable organisation Gigi Souritzidis explained "so far we in the US have sent 6 Toshiba laptops with another 30 new Windows 8 tablets destined for Freetown the capital of Sierra Leone in January to February, the charity's aim is to supply computers to the newly opening Teachers and IT tertiary college in the poverty stricken country teaching students how information technology has changed the world and how they can benefit".
The computers will be bought with donations from around the world and set-up in the new college which has just been completed in the suburb of Tower Hill in Freetown. Teachers at the college plan to introduce students to the new Windows 8 operating system giving first hand experience to Microsoft's latest version of their flagship software. We spoke to Fr Themi the head of the charity in Sierra Leone and was ecstatic to show off the new college which will annually teach over 1,000 locals. "Every brick has been bought buy volunteers from around the world to build this college and will educate some of Sierra Leone's most underprivileged who cannot afford dinner let alone a education. They will now get access to the latest technology that most westerners take for granted. Over 100,000 books have also been donated which may make this college on of the most well equipped in town".
The charity Paradise 4 Africa originally started over 10 years ago in Australia amongst Christian church member who wanted to give back to some of the poorest in the world. Since then over 5 million dollars has been donated and injected into the Sierra Leone and Kenyan economy building 3 schools, 2 colleges, medical clinics and disabled housing. Ms Jacqui Toumbas a volunteer from Australia told us she recently visited the mission in Sierra Leone and was astounded by what she witnessed. "So many people have given there time and money to help strangers 1000's of miles away in these countries and seeing it first hand really shows how great humanity is."
