Challenge

There are over 5,000 primary and secondary schools and 2 million students in Burundi; however, less than 1% of students have access to education in ICT and digital skills. Computers for Schools, in partnership with the Burundi government, is working tirelessly to close the digital gap by providing computers to schools and training instructors to educate Burundi's youth in ICT and digital entrepreneurship.

Solution

One elementary and one secondary school will be provided 40 desktop and 3 laptop computers in labs connected to the Internet. Forty teachers will be trained to deliver the ICT curriculum to students.

Long-Term Impact

Computers for Schools endeavors to provide equity of access to education in innovation and digital entrepreneurship; this will help Burundi's children become self-reliant and prepared to compete in regional and international job markets and business development.
