Challenge

The minority disabled group have been left out of modern technology. Given their condition, they have never been considered when ICT/IT activities are organized. The National Youth Development Organization visited three schools for the disabled and found out that most of them dont even know what a computer is talk less of know how it works or what it is used for. NYDO anticipates introducing computer education to these disabled young people.

Solution

15 computers will be bought and installed in the 3 schools. students will be taught on how to operate a computer. This will equally help them in the future as the pursue their career of seek for employment. It will facilitate research and communication/correspondence.

Long-Term Impact

This is an empowerment project because knowledge acquired will remain with them forever and they will be able to pass on other achievements got from the use of IT/computer operation. It will also bring lasting development within the students community.
