Re: [school-discuss] [Fwd: How could we be part of this]

 .Hi:  There's a model to consider at:
 .If you want to discuss this model, let me know.

I'm sorry to say that i found the project rather poorly documented. 
In particular, It is not explained to which country those efforts 
will be directed. 
Can you provide a bit more of information, please?

Kirimi Kaberia request is unclear to me, too; excuse my ignorance, 
i do not know ATCnet. A project to be developed in a 'rural district 
in East Africa' appears too hazy. 
Anybody can shed light on this? 

thank you
