Over the past 12 weeks or so we have been going out to the community of this District. We have brought computer knowledge to places that have never even seen a computer before. Places like Bukimvelo, Khiphinkunzi Dilikhulu, Bethangwe etc. The turnout for the computer classes have been great. My observation though has been that more women have attended computer classes then the men. A lot more. Why is that? Some have said most men in the rural areas are working in big cities that’s why women come for computers. But when you look at unemployment figures that is no longer the case. Is it because computers just do not appeal to men? There must be another reason. Why?
I recently did a site visit at Khula Village near St Lucia to monitor the quality of our services to the community. The commitment and hard working of our staff was amazing. The day was about 30 degrees celcius and our nurse was working on the tent. But the commitment and the quality time spent with patients was amazing. It did not matter how late a community member came to visit our mobile unit, Health educator made sure that they receive their health education before proceeding to a nurse or a counselor. On the other hand, counselors were also doing an extremely amazing job, giving health screening and HIV counselling to all the patients visiting the unit. In addition, the quality of data collection during these session was extremely good.
Guys and Girls, keep on the good work!!!
