Ready for lessons

We have worked with the Calabash Trust to support underprivileged communities in the Port Elizabeth area of South Africa.

This partenrship included the funding of a two year IT programme to increase capacity for teaching IT within a cluster of six schools. The challenge was to educate the teachers - many of whom have no computer experience - as well as the pupils, to ensure sustainability and enable IT to become fully integrated into the school curriculum.

While the level of success varied from school to school, it introduced over 4,000 primary school children and teachers to the basics of computer literacy as well as providing employment to six tutors.
