Hi, we are Barikawa Nairobi, Inc. a non-taxable Christian humanitarian organization that is organized in the USA functioning in Nairobi, Kenya.
Barikawa is 5+ years old and now poised for substantial growth. It began by housing a few AIDS orphaned children in a private flat in the ghetto neighborhood of Eastleigh. With modest private donations, it has grown to include several programs, which amount to a 55-pupil K-8 school, a children's home, medical missions, and a social network that, among other things, helps women to begin businesses with microfinancing.
So far, Barikawa works with little IT structure. It has an old desktop computer, a high-grade wireless printer, a few old computers for the school, and an iPhone 10R. OurTreasurer works with older Microsoft products, and our administration services are transitioning to NetSuite for Non-Profits.
It would be good to be able to upgrade our office computer and have more and more modern classroom computers. Our software implementation should also be updated. I am not sure how to proceed with all of this, but I assume if I review the online materials that I will get the hang of it.
Is there such a thing as a shopping consultant as part of the TechSoup program? That might help.
It is a pleasure for us to become part of the community,
Roy Dallas Russell, MD
Vice-Chairman, Barikawa Nairobi, Inc.

Welcome to the TechSoup community, Roy.
It would be helpful to see the official web site of your organization. Photos of staff using your office computer and respectful, appropriate photos of students in your classroom would also be helpful, so we can see that your work is real.

I have a web page that offers advice for fundraising for technology which I hope you will find helpful.
