The Spirit Of Holiday Giving Reaches Tech For Africa

On December 15, 2010
          The Technology For Africa Team arrived at Laurel Hill Elementary in Mount Pleasant to encounter classrooms of ecstatic children who were eager to hand over the 159 academic care packages they put together. The one gallon zip lock bags were stuffed to the brim with a seemingly endless supply of school supplies, books, toys and other childhood goodies. Many of the kids jumped at the chance to point out their knowledge of Cameroon's place on the map, as well as sharing many of their family connections to Africa. Every room visited, the TFA team was met head on by the purest and most sincere form of generosity and compassion my the children of tomorrow's future. The deepest thanks to the teachers, parents, and students at Laurel Hill for all of their help!

          In addition to Laurel Hill's donations, we received College of Charleston jerseys and 20 soccer balls to bring with our many supplies to Cameroon!
