... is the educator at CDI's Monkey Hill Centre. This project will ensure he gets the support and training he needs to deliver ICT courses to local community members. The training will help improve his technical and educational skills, making sure he is equipped to answer student's questions and facilitate engaging and effective lessons. He will also receive in-person visits and ongoing online support to help him plan his lessons, resolve any issues and provide general guidance.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Until recently Monkey Hill suffered from high levels of violence due to drugs-trafficking gangs who controlled the favela. This background means residents have historically suffered from a lack of basic services and decent education and employment opportunities. CDI courses offer young people in the community the opportunity to develop their ICT and soft skills (e.g. teamwork & presentation), increasing their employability and helping their formal education potential.

How will this project solve this problem?
