Computer Training Steadily Proceeding Despite COVID-19

Project Supporter,

A recent report published by eLearning Africa highlights The Effect of Covid-19 on Education in Africa and its Implications for the Use of Technology.

Here are some highlights

1. A lack of access to technology is considered to be the biggest barrier for learning during the current pandemic together with school closures. Respondents felt that learners in rural communities are those most likely to be

2. Educational TV and radio are seen as the most important technologies for sustaining learning for students at the primary level. At the secondary level, online learning is considered to be the most important. 

3. Some 85% of respondents anticipate that the current crisis will lead to more widespread use of technology in education in the future. However, they also note that this will lead to significant challenges for the most marginalized and may increase inequality.

Thankfully we were able to help bridge the gap by providing radios - enabling kids to listen to educational broadcasts from home.  Your support helped to make this possible. 

Covid-19 has emphasized the importance of computer proficiency.  So we are thrilled to share that we resumed computer training classes on the 27th of July.

We currently have two sessions - morning and afternoon from Monday to Friday. 

  • 9:30 am to 11:30 am
  • 3:00 pm to 5:15 pm

There are currently a total of forty-four (44) students plus one new student taking a private class.

Thanks to your support we are continuing to prepare children and youths for success in today's computer-driven society. 

Our recurring donors are truly making a lasting difference.  If you haven't had the chance to sign up for a recurring donation yet, we warmly welcome your ongoing support as we continue to provide children in Sierra Leone with the educational resources they need to be the future leaders of Sierra Leone.

Please share this project with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at GlobalGiving@developafrica.org.

Warm regards,

Sylvester and the Develop Africa team
