Mission with Kabul Polytechnic University PDF Print E-mail

In Spring of 2008, Kabul Polytechnic University (KPU) requested an instructor to teach two ArcGIS courses (introductory and advanced) to their faculty. An email broadcast went out in early June and 11 volunteers expressed interest in the mission. Following the recruitment process, Carl Kinkade of BearingPoint of Atlanta, GA was selected for the project.

On July 3rd, 2008, Carl arrived in Kabul and started teaching on July 5th. He returned to US on July 16th. The following are several photos that Carl has sent to us. For more details and Carl's daily posts, visit his BLOG.
