Celebrating International Women's Day online

By Janet Chapman | Project Leader

The rural government schools in Tanzania we support often suffer from a lack of teachers, particularly in science and maths. They generally have very few books or educational resources. Motivated students who want to become tomorrows’ doctors and teachers cannot succeed without passing exams. Therefore we provide offline content on flash drives, along with reconditioned projectors to allow teachers to display this to classes using their personal laptops.  We train teachers and students on the best way to use technology to supplement their existing resources to enable students to succeed.  

However many schools do not have access to electricity, and if they do suffer frequent power cuts. Therefore we were delighted to recently partner with Engineers Without Borders Norway to bring a solar power and router installation to Tumaini Open School, just in time for International Womens’ Day.

This means they can reliably use their laptops and projector to access learning materials and collaborate with other schools without fear of power outages.

Thank you again for your support.
