Challenge

Many elementary students in Adama, Ethiopia attend public schools for only half days, crowded into classrooms with over 50 students, and limited to narrowly defined curriculums. Seeds of Africa's mission is to provide a safe haven where our students are given the individual attention they need to succeed – from food supplements and medical care to literature, drama, and arts enrichment coursework.

Solution

Specifically, this project will provide the new Take-Root center with 15 laptops, speakers, headphones, and a high-speed internet connection, enabling teachers to incorporate e-books, news, and interactive presentations into a progressive project-based curriculum.

Long-Term Impact

This technology center is key in expanding Seeds into a fully-equipped year-round school with more than 100 students. The laptops and elibrary subscription secured through this project will provide access to thousands of electronic texts and classroom resources, and the technology center at our new location will give our students the necessary skills for becoming effective citizens in a technologically advanced global community.
