Former Peace Corps volunteer, Ben Bakker, returned to Tanzania in March to visit JBFC as part of a team of teachers from Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. During their two-week trip, Bakker and his fellow teachers noticed JBFC’s challenges with bringing advanced technologies to our students. Bakker and his wife decided to help. Kristan Bakker was in Uganda this summer and decided to take a side trip to Tanzania and bring some high-tech gifts with her.
What is most exciting about our new intranet system, is that it is able to pull together various technology projects from the past year and half and help all of them work together- from the Bronxville Rotary sponsored computer lab and laptops to Nina McManus’ Kobo E-Reader project. Nina is a JBFC Ambassador, who attends Bronxville High School in New York. She raised more than $15,000 to bring brand new e-readers to campus this summer.
From all of us at JBFC, we would like to thank everyone who has made these pieces of our technology system possible- from the Bakkers, to Nina McManus, to the Bronxville Rotary! We wouldn’t have been able to do it without you.
