The goal of the Multimedia Room Project is to create a modern technology classroom that will be used by over 300 students and teachers at a rural school in Bulgaria. This will be achieved by permanently installing technology that is already in the school’s possession (a laptop and multimedia projector) and by training the staff and students in its use.
 
  
This project is a priority for both the teachers and the students at school and works towards the school's long-term goals of modernization and quality education improvement. The multimedia room will serve many important functions. First, it will be used as a technology classroom that will be available for use by all the teachers and their classes. One of the most important components of the project will be training both the teaching staff and the students in the use of the multimedia equipment. Teachers will learn new ideas for incorporating technology into the classroom and students will receive training in the equipment and will practice presentation skills that will better prepare them both for further study at university and the workforce. The room will also serve an important function in the school as a ‘free period room’ for students when classes are cancelled. And finally, the multimedia room will be used as a theater by an after school, student-organized film club.

Nancy Turner Sturdivant served in Cochabamba from July of 1962 to August of 1964 as a Public Health Nurse and group coordinator. Part of the time I lived in Cochabamba with the Cornejo family and part of the time with a family in Tiquepaya.  At this moment I cannot locate the family name of the Tiquepaya couple but their first names were Alcira and Armando and they were wonderful people with beautiful children. I found the Bolivian people to be kind, generous, patient and welcoming. Armando and his wife built onto their house probably to give them more room for their growing family, but while we were there it served well for my fellow volunteer nurse Lois Duffin and myself while we lived with the family. They even installed a faucet with running water and a latrine.  Armando was a community leader and ran a small store.  The family lived on the town square across from the R. C. church. Much of our work centered around opening small community clinics, teaching and encouraging families to install latrines, and operating a small clinic near the school where we bandaged up little scrapes and minor injuries of the school children and out of which we taught the children about health practices, hygiene, etc.
  
The school will provide the computer and multimedia projector as well as the space for the room. Members of the school staff will also provide the labor both for remodeling the room and training the school community. Money from the Peace Corps Partnership Program will be used to remodel a currently un-used space in the school and to purchase educational videos for the school’s library.

We worked closely with Father Bob and the Sisters of Charity who also had similar work going on in the outlying areas of Cochabamba.  Our work was enabled by having access to a jeep which allowed us the flexibility of getting into the countryside in those days when transportation was difficult to come by except by riding in the backs of trucks.

Nancy Turner Sturdivant served in Cochabamba from July of 1962 to August of 1964 as a Public Health Nurse and group coordinator. Part of the time I lived in Cochabamba with the Cornejo family and part of the time with a family in Tiquepaya. At this moment I cannot locate the family name of the Tiquepaya couple but their first names were Alcira and Armando and they were wonderful people with beautiful children. I found the Bolivian people to be kind, generous, patient and welcoming. Armando and his wife built onto their house probably to give them more room for their growing family, but while we were there it served well for my fellow volunteer nurse Lois Duffin and myself while we lived with the family. They even installed a faucet with running water and a latrine. Armando was a community leader and ran a small store. The family lived on the town square across from the R. C. church. Much of our work centered around opening small community clinics, teaching and encouraging families to install latrines, and operating a small clinic near the school where we bandaged up little scrapes and minor injuries of the school children and out of which we taught the children about health practices, hygiene, etc.

We worked closely with Father Bob and the Sisters of Charity who also had similar work going on in the outlying areas of Cochabamba. Our work was enabled by having access to a jeep which allowed us the flexibility of getting into the countryside in those days when transportation was difficult to come by except by riding in the backs of trucks.

Perhaps later I will add more to this journal. NTS
