Linking university students and professors in Ghana and the US to create Community Learning and Technology Centers in schools, metropolitan and rural communities in Ghana.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Student teams are establishing Community Learning and Technology Centers (CLTCs) to provide the average Ghanaian access to ICT. 7 CLTCs have been established so far. Over 50 CLTCs will be established throughout the country over the next 5 years. Funds will be used to employ 4 Community Services Foundation (CSF) staff, provide transportation needs for student teams and prepare CLTC facilities for installation of computer and network equipment.
How will this project solve this problem?
CSF, founds CLTCs to work with local school administration and community leaders to prepare a facility, trainers and local management team. CSF then runs the training program for trainers at KNUST.
Potential Long Term Impact
The target is to establish up to 10 CLTCs every year in the country based on available resources.
