Summary

Sierra Leonean youths are eager to learn to use computers. From developing an understanding of computers, youths from slums in the capital city can benefit from what the worldwide web can offer.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

• Need to help bridge the digital divide between the have- and the have- Nots. • Need to provide computer literacy, enrichment and training programs to marginalized communities. • Need to bring the potential of Information technology to those who have not been touched by it as yet. • Need to open up a window of opportunities for youths in disadvantaged communities and help them realize their true potential.

How will this project solve this problem?

• The selection, renovation and equipping of a building for the training center. • Identifying and employing qualified tutors to provide training. 3. Identifying donor sources to help fund the project. • A public awareness campaign on the benefits

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will broaden to include a majority of underprivileged children and youth of all ages, from pre-school to secondary school. The project will be scaled up and modified along the way, in response to the demands of local residents.
