Welcome to the summer 2008 project blog. This is a continuation of a two year project joining the resources of the University of Illinois and the people of Sao Tome, West Africa. This summer the project is supported by the Graduate School of Library and Information Science, the East St. Louis Action Research Project and the Academy for Entrepreneur Leadership. The project consists of two parts: the first is the expansion of information access points by establishing computer labs in secondary (middle) schools and the second is technology (hardware) training for Sao Tome high school students. (Technology Transfer as a Form of Social and Economic Entrepreneurship)

The summer project began on June 12 when I arrived in Sao Tome with my daughter Ashley. While I work on the logistics of the project and contacted government officials and partners, Ashley is teaching English to secondary students. The main group from UI and East St Louis arrived on June 26.
