tools for learning, grant received, computers installed

The day finally arrived: Bev and I's SPA (Small Project Assistance) grant came through and due to our hard efforts five new computers and one new printer-scanner were installed. We wrote the grant in order to improve upon an already in place computer lab for women. It is taboo for women in Azerbaijan to enter most internet clubs because they are usually overrun by young boys playing video games. Thanks to centers like ours, women can feel free to come, use the internet, and educate themselves on a myriad of computer programs and internet resources.
