In today’s technological world computers and the skill required are essential in gaining employment. Our computer program will help each student to fully understand and utilise the power of the Internet and other basic computer skills for example Word, Excel and Powerpoint. They will also learn to communicate via e-mail. With each student managing their own personal email account, they will be able to maintain communication with their international sponsor and volunteer teachers from all over the world. All students and volunteers teachers through the generous donation of 20 laptops are able to access and learn through computer literacy.
Teaching the skill of computers is invaluable as the job prospects of each student that was previously unattainable become possible. Your basic IT skills can change the future of a student and possibly their community.
