Feedback from our African Programmes:
Schools in Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe have been closed for the last few weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Sadly for most schools they do not have the resources to provide online schooling for students.
We remain committed to providing computers, e-Learning materials, teacher training and our digital labs, to the schools most in need. Our teams in Africa are working hard to provide support during these difficult times. We are working with our partners and the Ministries of Education to develop new initiatives to improve digital education for children, which is now more essential than ever.
At a time when our usual routines have been completely disrupted, the Covid-19 outbreak has highlighted the importance of digital access to information and services. We want to continue supporting our community partners in Gloucestershire to provide our support and service to those most vulnerable, as well as reopening our training and placement programmes at our Cheltenham site.
