The Rural ICT Project is aimed at learning institutions and community organizations in rural or out-of-town areas with limited or no access to computer facilities.
Identified beneficiary organizations must have active community engagement. These organizations serve different demographics such as preschool children, primary and secondary school children, young adults, women and men.
Currently, our beneficiaries range in age from as young as 3 year olds to 65 year olds.
Our programs are located in different parts of the country.
The ICT Centres are managed by the beneficiary organizations and used to enhance their main activities.
Surrounding communities have access to these centres and their services which include computer literacy training, internet browsing and other complementary services such as printing, photocopying and phone charging.
Revenues generated from these centres are used by the beneficiary organizations for maintenance, sustainability and other needs.
The Foundation monitors the usage of the ICT Centres.
