Summary

Bitame Lucia School in Cameroon computer lab using solar technology will provide computer training to 5000 students in villages. Access to Internet & multimedia training will enrich their learning. By using renewable solar technology, we will be helping to reduce our carbon footprint and reducing consumption of the earth's resources.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Nkolfoulou school does not have any electricity. The village does not have any computer facilities. There are about 5000 students from neighboring schools that have never used a computer or received any training in computing skills. These facilities will improve the quality of their education – giving access to multimedia resources and training available through the internet. It will help bridge the "Digital Divide" – exposing them to a wealth of information available on the Internet

How will this project solve this problem?

The project will set up a solar powered computer lab and access to multimedia training and the internet that will significantly increase learning opportunities and broaden the horizons of this rural community – equipping them for success.

Potential Long Term Impact

Access to computer technology will level the playing field and help prepare them for success in our information-driven and computer-aided world. Their learning will be greatly increased – providing an excellent platform for further education.
