Information about the project
Information Communication Technology Literacy Project
About 70% of the world’s populations do not have the opportunity to use computers and related technologies. The digital divide is prevalent in our part of the world and for us poverty is as a result of lack of education and technology. The organization was founded on the premise that universal primary education and information are vital for poverty eradication. ICT centers have been established in remote areas of Ghana connected with moodles and internet. Over 10,000 students have gained knowledge and self development with employable skills through the literacy project. About 4, 271 are currently studying at the centers.
