Challenge

Public schools in Nigeria like most developing countries, lack the technological tools needed to grow and not left behind. Lack of computer skills, and absence of STEM training at an early age will put the kids at a disadvantage and set them up for failure in college and later the global workforce. As a result of endemic poverty schools in developing countries simply can't afford basic technology necessary to enhance and develop learning. Some inner-city schools have no STEM in their curriculum

Solution

VHF provides computers and Internet access to public schools globally, bringing students in Developing countries into contact with the broader world, opening up access to education through all the resources on the web. In addition, VHF provides STEM training for inner city girls, using Mindstorm Lego robotics by engaging them in the fun and excitement that comes with coding.

Long-Term Impact

With the use of computers and internet access, students can develop the skills and knowledge that is essential in today's workforce. In order to break the cycle of poverty, VHF is committed to helping kids in Nigeria and other developing countries, and inner city kids to achieve their potential by taking an interest in STEM - the jobs of tomorrow. By introducing tomorrow's leaders and workers to STEM and ensuring their access to technology, to gain a competitive edge in the global economy.
