This lab would provide students with internet access, a projector and teacher training to allow for effective teaching of computer studies in a community that hasn’t previously had access to IT.
The school has access to electricity, located on the Grid with nearly 90% of their energy made up of hydro power, however due to expensive tariffs they lack the funds necessary to invest in developments for the school.
By providing the school with these facilities, we give 410 students a year the opportunity to learn the vital computer skills, skills that are required if they wish to attend University in Malawi.
Installing a computer lab in the school will benefit students year after year, providing adequate teaching with long-term maintenance plans for the equipment, to allow for a sustainable IT future.
Working with P2A has opened a world of opportunity for the Turing Trust, connecting with P2A members means that we'll be able to support thousands of African students, enabling them to gain all important IT skills for our digital age
