computer 4 change

The inclusion of ICT as a mandatory topic in the new Ghana Education Service (GES) curriculum has presented a significant difficulty because most schools lack access to ICT infrastructure, computers, and qualified instructors to implement the ICT component of this syllabus. As a result, the majority of students lack the ICT competency required to pass the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).


The Computer 4 Change program seeks to solicit and deliver low-cost refurbished computers loaded with relevant open source educational software to schools in underprivileged areas where the digital divide is at its widest.
