Greeting to all the friends of the giraffe sanctuary. I am glad to inform you that we finally purchased the computer which we seriously needed for our work. I would like to say thank you for all those who contributed towards this machine that will help save many giraffes in the arids areas of kenya.
The giraffes in our sanctuary are doing extremely well and the community are increasingly positive and supportive. I wish I could keep you updated more frequently but in order to make posts on my blog I need to walk 5 km to Garissa and download photos from my camera into a computer at an internet cafe. This can be very inconvenient due to the queues, delays and cost. It means I can’t write my posts from the field which is what I really want to do …
Having a computer is more important than the blog,however, I really need to have continuous access to a computer to record the data on giraffes and community activities, to prepare documents, trainings and reports.
Today my biggest hurdle is getting a computer. It cost me USD 1000 to buy a lap top in Nairobi or Mombasa. Please help if you can by making a donation towards the first Giraffe Sanctuary computer. WildlifeDirect have promised to help me to purchase the machine once I have the donations, and to provide the necessary software.
Thank you all for hearing my plea
Manager, The Giraffe Sanctuary
