Summary

This project provides mobile PC carts that each have 25 PCs (for students) and a laptop (for the teacher), which can turn any classroom into a computer lab.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Egypt, many children, especially girls, have very limited acess to education. The problem is even more pronounced in the rural areas of the country, creating a tremendous challenge for students battling illiteracy and poverty. Girls often face restricted social spaces and an uphill struggle to get an education, due to factors such family pressures, inadequate facilities, and higher workloads at home. There is also often a shortage of teachers, and a lack of community involvement with schools.

How will this project solve this problem?

CARE will provide access to computers and train teachers to incorporate technology into education. Students will gain computer literacy skills and be able to link to other students globally to expand their world views.

Potential Long Term Impact

This project will lead to increased instructional capacity of teachers, computer literacy skills for students and the creation of girlsAaa active social networks.
