OCDI continued its 21st century training for children in Asa local Government Area despite the covid -19 pandemic. We found out that some of the schools teach computer lessons but do not have computers for use in the school.They use only drawings from the textbooks. Some of the kids who have benefitted from OCDI's activity at one time or the other are asking for more .
