The Nkolfoulou school does not have any electricity. The village does not have any computer facilities. There are about 5,000 students from neighboring schools that have never used a computer or received any training in computing skills. These facilities will improve the quality of their education - giving access to multimedia resources and training available through the Internet. It will help bridge the "Digital Divide" - exposing them to a wealth of information available online.


The project will set up a solar powered computer lab and provide access to multimedia training and the Internet. This will significantly increase learning opportunities and broaden the horizons of the rural community - equipping them for success.

Long-Term Impact

Access to computer technology will level the playing field and help prepare students for success in our information-driven and computer-aided world. Their learning will be greatly increased - providing an excellent platform for further education.
