Good Shepherd Nursing School is a two-year nursing assistant program. It is the only nursing assistant program in Swaziland. With the world’s highest HIV prevalence, Swaziland’s need for highly competent and trained health care workers is crucial. Technological assistance plays a significant role in building institutional capacity by creating opportunities to rapidly access research findings and other credible web-based resources. Available emerging evidence is especially important for the school to build capacity because it trains many students that will help combat the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Accessible and updated information is a vital teacher and student resource for developing a high quality training program. Technological assistance will also build local institutional capacity by providing efficient lecture preparation and curriculum revision and shareable presentations between schools.
 
  
The principal proposes that technological assistance will overall improve the quality and delivery of information to the students. The total cost is USD 5470. The cost includes one school laptop, one LCD projector, and four flash drives for use by the faculty. Two desktop computers, one printer, and printer cable will be purchased for use by the students. The computers and laptop will be equipped with Microsoft Office and recent antivirus software. The school will enroll all four teachers into a basic computer skills training course through the Community Multimedia Center, which includes Microsoft Office and the internet courses. The school will also provide computer desks and chairs, internet installation and maintenance fees, transport for the quotations, equipment purchasing, and delivery, and equipment setup.

The cooks at the primary school work in an unhealthy and dilapidated kitchen. It is constructed of old mud, bricks and a corrugated tin roof. The structure is poorly ventilated and falling apart. The area receives strong wind, and torrential rains that threaten to wipe out the structure every season. The food is cooked over a fire in large pots which result in no ventilation, clean air, or hygienic work space. In the kitchen the food sits on unsanitary surfaces with rickety doors because there is no storage space.

In place of the unsuitable kitchens it is proposed that a new facility be constructed that will serve the community and the school. It will be large enough to accommodate a cooking area, space for food, storage and the supplies that the structure once held. The kitchen will be soundly built, able to withstand harsh rain and extreme wind. It will be a healthy, reliable place for children to get two or more meals a day. Once built, the kitchen will be maintained, kept clean and supplied by the community, children and the cooks. It is a project the neighborhood is fully supporting with all measures being taken to efficiently complete the structure.

In a rural community in Swaziland there is a small primary school dedicated to the education and care of the community’s children. The school provides meals for the children, and these meals are often the only food the children receive each day.

The cooks at the primary school work in an unhealthy and dilapidated kitchen. It is constructed of old mud, bricks and a corrugated tin roof. The structure is poorly ventilated and falling apart. The area receives strong wind, and torrential rains that threaten to wipe out the structure every season. The food is cooked over a fire in large pots which result in no ventilation, clean air, or hygienic work space. In the kitchen the food sits on unsanitary surfaces with rickety doors because there is no storage space.

In place of the unsuitable kitchens it is proposed that a new facility be constructed that will serve the community and the school. It will be large enough to accommodate a cooking area, space for food, storage and the supplies that the structure once held. The kitchen will be soundly built, able to withstand harsh rain and extreme wind. It will be a healthy, reliable place for children to get two or more meals a day. Once built, the kitchen will be maintained, kept clean and supplied by the community, children and the cooks. It is a project the neighborhood is fully supporting with all measures being taken to efficiently complete the structure.
