Summary

Millions of children lack basic computer literacy, lack of access to information and how to communicate. Children who go to schools in poor and rural areas do not have basic hands on computer practice. Our partner World Computer Exchange can offer a solution - mobile libraries equipped that can be used in schools for accessibility. This project will provide 1,800 school children access to develop their vital technology skills and opportunities.

Challenge

Computer and internet skills are costly to access in Sierra Leone. It's the new illiteracy. In the rural, over 96% of schools do not have computers and internet connections or electricity, so even the children do not know the important to practice and how to communicate. The lack of such access for children of poor families in the rural is too high. Lack of access, practice and skills, unable them to compete in the job-market, to access opportunities and so continues in extreme poverty.

Solution

Funds donated will be used to purchase four mobile libraries equipped with solar panels, laptop and tablet computers, and teaching aids, that will be used to visit four schools every week, reaching 1,800 school children in the rural forgotten communities. Working with teachers and headmasters, librarians will provide the children with hands on computer classes. With regular skills practice, the children will break the international digital divide, be empowered and access many opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

More than 3,400 children will have access to information, education and communication at the end of the project. The children will have learnt basic and practical computer literacy and internet skills for empowerment and job opportunities to lift themselves and their communities out of poverty. This project will expose children for higher calling and future opportunities. We are kindly asking you to join us, make this project yours and support these children become the stars of tomorrow world.
