Recycle your computers and help African children
Hi Chris, have a look at our website - I.T. Schools Africa - Home and there's a video showing the results of our work - YouTube - IT Schools Africa has given 5 million African children access to IT.
Our flagship project is in Zambia, where we've supplied 500 schools with a 10 PC computer lab. We've also supplied 150 schools in Malawi, 300 in Zimbabwe,70 in Tanzania and about 90 in Madagascar (resource centers) . All in all, over 20,000 systems in 5 years. We've also trained more than 650 teachers.
These countries are amongst the poorest in the world, and our stated aim is to transform their IT education by providing them with the equipment they need. We rely on donations from Uk Educational establishments for around 60% of this. We estimate that we've given more than 5 million of the world's poorest children the oportunity to begin their journey to IT literacy.
I'll be at the BETT show on Wednesday 13th, and the Computer-Essentials stand will be showing our video. I'll also be hooking up with Hollie at the Network SI stand, and Tony Stanley of Trilby Multimedia (an old chum).
See you there!
