This project will purchase a New canon photo copier which will also do printing and scanning at the same time to equip a youth computer training center. Globalgiving donors helped set up a computer center in Mpigi District, the project is training over 100 youth on computer skills.The center offers Internet access, training and resources to close the Digital Divide in the community where as few as one in 100 youth can use a computer.
There is demand for a photo copier in the center, the center will charge some amount on photocopying which will enable them raise money for paying rent for premises and paying the attendant. Many high school and University students come to do their homework and other constructive activities, some will need to print out a document on internet.
The center will have a special emphasis on providing digital skills to help area residents improve their employment possibilities. Youth classes will go beyond basic digital literacy training to include more advanced classes in such topics as online job search, resume development, and basic Microsoft Word and Excel.
The youth and the public will pay some amount fro the service. Regular classes will be conducted on computer basics, printing, scanning,photocopying and use of the Internet and email.
