Our goal is to give access to a digital education to 8800 students in low income schools in Malawi. Practical knowledge of IT will further young students education, enabling them to generate an income, improving future job prospects and supporting wider families and communities.
Malawi is one of the worlds poorest countries, ranked 18th least developed in the world - 2019 UNDP Report. 51% of the population are under 18 and the majority leave school without developing digital skills. Students try to learn IT and take exams without ever seeing a computer before.
We aim to provide low income secondary schools with an IT lab starter pack of 10 computers, software and IT support providing IT facilities and digital teaching to students for the very first time. We will support schools which have little funding and cannot afford IT facilities. This will enable students to benefit from the practical element of their ICT classes. These new facilities will enable the schools to make a small income through night schools or IT cafes to sustain the IT lab.
