I have some additional questions related to 1) the School itself and 2) Computer Labs

Details needed for the 2 Schools:
- Number of Male students, Number of Female students
- Primary, secondary, or high school?
- Grades and students in each grade
- Number/%age of students who pass matriculation
- Any religious curriculum / missionary activities?
- What do students do once they graduate? Employed (skilled/unskilled) or higher education?

Computer Labs:
- What curriculum will be taught?
- Is computer science a mandatory subject for matriculation?
- What grades/classes will be taught in the computer lab?
- How many students / computer?

Also, as i mentioned we funded a computer lab. Following are some details including success metrics:
