How Previous Teams Contributed
A team of IT professionals in New Zealand provided a library management system for seven partner schools in the Asia region. They migrated library data bases to the Koha Library System developed in New Zealand, and cloud storage, updates, and backups were all managed from New Zealand for these theological schools.
This continues to be a huge blessing to these colleges.
What Providing Consultancy Help Might Involve
Depending on the team and need, providing consultancy help may be in person or remote, or even a combination of both.
Teams may visit for a week or more to assess issues, make recommendations, and train staff. Or teams may help remotely by mentoring individuals or developing systems from home.
