Support students in Uganda create an e-library



Finalist of the Microsoft in Education School Pitch Competition! In Gayaza High School in Uganda students want to create an online library page with links to videos showing the processes of production within the small scale local enterprises in Uganda and where they are located.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The youth today are being encouraged to be job creators and not job seekers and they do not have a library from where they can learn about the possible businesses that have succeeded in Uganda. The Uganda lower secondary curriculum will be changing in 2017 to integrate entrepreneurship in the teaching areas and the teachers will have no library to use as a reference source.

How will this project solve this problem?

Students will document the processes of production within the local enterprises in Uganda and create instructional videos that will be used for marketing the activities of the entrepreneurs by creating an online library page with links to these videos. This library will also be used to improve the teaching and learning process by providing the practical entrepreneurial aspects into the curriculum.

Potential Long Term Impact

Since it is an online product and a needs based library then we shall introduce our work to schools with the view of profiling other enterprises within their areas. This library needs to grow to include enterprises globally such that the youth can learn from a global village.
