In an effort to connect children to the internet, we are working with the infamous teacher Owura Kwadwo, originally from Kumasi, Ghana, teaching ICT in a rural farming community, which lacks basic equipment and resources for the task. "Every teacher has a way of presenting his subject to his students. This is my way,"
The children in his classroom originally didn't have computers so he was drawing on the chalkboard to explain the different parts of a typical page used on a computer. Since then, his photo went viral and he has received numerous donations of computers and equipment. But, there is no WiFi connection.
We have been in contact with Mr. Kwadwo and asked what he still needs. We also suggested he use our www.nightzookeeper.com software to connect the children in Japan. He is keen to do so but explained that the school did not have WiFi and the school would fall under a business category which is why the Wifi cost of $500 per month is quoted.
But helping with the initial installation and monthly running costs, Mr. Kwadwo has sought help from the local community "I have able to consult some subchiefs and assembly members and they are willing to support with the monthly payment". We hope to connect the children to the internet so they can practice writing online and join us for our Digital Citizenship program.
