Build a Library for 800+ Students in rural Rwanda!

by Sanejo

Summary

Sanejo, through the promotion of education, aims to support communities transiting from war to peace or facing abject poverty. To ensure that all children have a happy and safe place to learn, support is extended to local communities to reconstruct and expand schools. This project will build a combined library and computer lab for the Ntenyo Primary School in rural Rwanda. Over 800 students and local community members will be able to improve their literacy and use a computer for the first time.

Challenge

The Ntenyo Primary School currently educated over 800 children ranging in age from 6 to 20 years old. The school is located in a poor, rural community that lacks educational facilities (i.e. libraries, computer labs). Although children understand what computers are, 99% of them have never seen one in person.

Solution

Together with the local and international partners, Sanejo aims to bridge the digital divide by building a computer lab and library at the Ntenyo Primary School. In partnership with a local internet provider, we will equip the computer lab/library with electricity and high speed internet. The computer/library will be open to the students as well as local community members and be equipped with six computers, a projector for international Skype calls and walls filled with book

Long-Term Impact

The computer lab/library will grant 800 students and over 1,000 local community members (including primary and secondary school drop-outs) access to the internet and books. Computer skills and literacy lessons will be offered for free, which will serve to increase job opportunities for the students and educate the local community about the importance of reading and education.
