Campaign Story

The project aims to deliver Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) solutions to Rimbi primary and high schools (located in underserved rural areas of Chipinge district, Zimbabwe), through the establishment of innovative computer and internet based learning programs in the school curriculum. As a result, 500 students will improve their math and science skills and 20 school teachers will gain skills and knowledge in computer literacy and internet usage.

Tekeshe is working to provide computer and internet access within rural schools to undeserved children and youth to support their educational development. An appropriate and innovative math and science curriculum will be designed in line with the educational system regulations, social and cultural contexts of Zimbabwe. Teachers will be trained in math and science teaching programs as well as in computer literacy and internet usage as part of the first stage of the project implementation.

Children and youth educational development will be enhanced and the project aims to put them in a better position to find jobs after they graduate. Teachers experience in teaching computer and internet based learning programs will enhance their qualifications. The digital divide will be bridged resulting in new opportunities for children, youth, teachers and the community as a whole.
