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.
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.
Our e-Learning Centres are helping to give access to ICT education to more students than ever before. These projects are transforming IT Education for the students, increasing the number of children taking exams in the subject and improving the teaching of other subjects. We now have 15 Centres in Malawi and Zambia, you can read more about them here.
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.
