Computer lessons in Triunfo - Perú

The GVI Phoenix volunteers in Triunfo have this year started computer lessons to all the children at the school as part of their curriculm. So far the children have been learning how to make drawings in ‘paint’, as for a lot of the kids it's their first experience of using a computer. The volunteers are giving impressive demonstrations and the older ones even made a poster for a football match.

A fun way to figure out how the mouse works, because sometimes it can go wrong. The next step is learning how to use ‘word’ and typing lessons for the children of fifth and sixth grade. It is the favourite hour of the week for the children, and I’m sure that the volunteers are enjoying it equally as much.
