Computer Studies Lab for Bumpe High, Sierra Leone



This project will help Bumpe High School in rural Sierra Leone, a school that was torn down during the 11 years war in Sierra Leone, build a computer studies lab to provide their students with digital skills.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Students and teachers engaging with technology can create significant positive change in the world. Bumpe High School, a school destroyed during the 11 year war in Sierra Leone, used to be one of the most prestigious high schools in West Africa in terms of academics and global connections, but today the community has few collaborative global learning experiences because of a total lack of technological resources. Students know nothing about e-communication or networking (Twitter, Facebook, etc)

How will this project solve this problem?

The proposed computer studies center will enhance students' creative thinking, allowing students to construct knowledge and develop innovative approaches to local and global challenges. A technological environment for students at BHS will support individual learning by allowing students to gather, evaluate, and use online information, and will help to reestablish BHS as a leader among rural West African schools, enriching the education and lives of hundreds of students each year.

Potential Long Term Impact

The computer studies center will help BHS students to develop 21st century learning skills connected to global technologies, which are increasingly necessary for success in university and most advanced careers. Exposure to and experience with global technologies and collaborative learning experiences will also help to ensure the employment of BHS graduates, as many job vacancies are published on websites which aid employment and universal development.
