Lack of IT literacy in Africa is also a barrier to further education, with students struggling to complete coursework and dissertations without being able to use computers. Some schools have such limited resources; one computer is shared between ten children, and other schools ask for broken machines just to explain the basic elements of computers to the children.
Over the last decade IT Schools Africa has been improving education in Africa, working closely with our in-country partners to provide good quality, affordable computers to schools.
We understand the needs of the schools; what the teachers want and importantly how we can help to improve the learning experience for children in Africa.
Our computers have educational software pre-installed, ready for the teachers to use to make their lessons not only informative but also interesting and interactive for the students.
We plan to further improve education in Africa through the development of projects to provide access to IT for vulnerable communities; for young, unemployed adults or adults that perhaps didn't get the chance to go to school.
