He'd hardly used a computer, but he found he had a talent for it.

He's the first of my internet café customers who I might once have had to address as "Excellency" This is because he is the former Benin Ambassador to France.

Now over a hundred children have benefitted and it has national and international recognition. For example, I've just been to an internet café in Nairobi where I found a couple emailing to Finland. Nairobi to Finland is an interesting link, too, but it's slightly illogical. Ghana was really interesting but it left me linkless. When I appeared on Outlook recently I asked for interesting stories of cafes that might link countries together, and it was a Nairobi resident, Anna Obura, who suggested I come here. So far, from Nairobi I have got links to Finland, the United States (been there, too) Dubai, and the small African country of Benin.
