Challenge

Ghana remains a least developed country in the world. Though it had attained middle income status, the United Nations Human Development Index (combining income, life expectancy, adult literacy and school enrollment) ranks Ghana 142nd out of 174 countries. For Ghana, like other developing countries, poverty clearly remains a major issue and its eradication in all its manifestations is a priority for Industry and corporate, civil society, government and the international community.

Solution

ICT has not only become the main driver of education but a means and motivation for lifelong learning. Development organizations also see information and knowledge sharing using ICT between themselves, government, the private sector, bilateral and multilateral aid agencies as key to tackling poverty. A strong, financially healthy NGO such as FTIT Ghana can provide efficient and diverse services to ICT beneficiaries.

Long-Term Impact

Provide computers to educational institutions and development organizations in Ghana, Facilitate other related technical infrastructure provision for productive use of the computer Provide training and capacity support to users in schools Provide software and content support Facilitate Internet connectivity, e-learning, monitoring and evaluation services; and Provide research in ICT for Education development support
