Good health and well-being

  
ICTs are powering a revolution in digital learning, which has become one of the world's fastest-growing industries. Mobile devices now allow students to access learning assets anytime, anywhere. Teachers are now using mobile devices for everything from literacy and numerical training to interactive tutoring. Indeed, mobile learning has the ability to help break down economic barriers, divides between rural and urban, as well as the gender divide.

​​​Summer Holiday Camp 
During the summer holidays, MindAfrica organizes an enrichment camp for about 120 underserved students from across schools in Port Harcourt, Nigeria. This is a fun, interactive and engaging program that is interdisciplinary and collaborative in its approach. The main objective is to get students to develop problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and communications skills. Instructors lead students through a range of hands-on demonstrations and problem-solving designed to show the real-life applications of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
