What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
It is our desire is to offer classes for Chadians who wish to learn how to better use a computer. This would include teaching basic software and email programs. We have a well-equipped IT room and, with your help, we are ready to put it to good use!
Though we keep a low profile at our Learning Center, there are usually opportunities to share the Hope we have with our students, whether in or out of class. Check out our video about our work in Chad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlK7YthiCVA&feature=youtu.be
Computer teachers will need to provide or develop a curriculum or basic plan for teaching. Students will be mostly men, both Muslim and non-Muslim. There will be lots of opportunities to connect with the students because of small classes of 10 students or less!
