What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

Limaniya (Faith) is our project. It is a cooperative that brings together the resources and talents of many people to achieve goals that would otherwise be impossible. For example, the cooperative recently purchased a communal rice machine with funds raised by farming and gardening. It allows members of the community to achieve things together that they could not achieve on their own.

How would a laptop help you?

I am the administrative secretary of an agricultural cooperative. In the cooperative we work in gardening, beekeeping, tree planting, and reforestation. A laptop would assist me in creating documentation, keeping track of funds, and writing plans and objectives. I also hope to start helping people to learn computer skills in my village. Without computer skills, you cannot find a good job.

What do you love about this project?

When we as a people work together in this cooperative we all elevate ourselves equally.

What Languages do you speak?

French, English, Malinke, Sousou.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
