The ratio of students to computers in secondary education in Zambia is a staggering 27 to 1. ITSA's partner charity, Computers for Zambian Schools (CFZS) is helping to change this.
CFZS has distributed more than 11,000 computers to over 500 schools in Zambia.
Their mission is to transform ICT Education in Zambia, by providing schools with access to good quality, low-cost computers and ICT support.
The computers enable the schools to provide their pupils with the essential ICT skills they need to thrive in the digital economy.
CFZS also focus on increasing access to ICT to wider communities; helping young adults learn the basics and importantly give them skills they can use to run their own businesses. The e-Learning centre at The Joseph Community Center School supports both students and local residents. The centre was funded by ITSA and has already made a dramatic impact reducing the computer ratio from 20 children to one computer, to two children to one computer.
To support young graduates CFZS runs an internship programme helping them to gain valuable work experience, before starting out in their careers. For more information about the internship programme or if you would like to apply for computers please contact:
