Amos and Emmy in the CTPH Gorilla Research Clinic
Graduates of CTPH’s Introductory Course on Computers, 2008
Reason for taking the course: Amos and Emmy both wanted to learn about computers to better prepare for university studies and increase their career prospects in the long-run.
Background: Amos and Emmy were high school students when they took CTPH’s Introductory Course on Computers in 2008. Neither had ever used a computer before the course, but both had aspirations for professional careers. Both Amos and Emmy paid for the training out of their own pockets and found it to be worth every schilling.
Impact: CTPH combined computer training with exposure to its Gorilla Research Clinic, where CTPH investigates the intersection of human, wildlife and livestock health and conservation. This combination of computer and conservation training further refined Amos and Emmy’s career interests. Amos gained further exposure to cell biology and Emmy become interested in a career in conservation. Amos is scheduled to begin college for medical instruction in May and Emmy plans to begin his university studies on conservation and tourism in September. Both Amos and Emmy have highly recommended CTPH’s course to their friends and family and would pursue advanced studies if they were available in Buhoma.
