ACT-US : Technology Brought to 7,000+ Students in Sub-Saharan Africa

By December 6, 2019 No Comments

COMPUTERS HAVE BROUGHT DIGITAL LITERACY AND SELF SUFFICIENCY TO 7,000+ STUDENTS IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

Computers are the modern day’s answer to an encyclopedia, providing us with unlimited knowledge at our fingertips. Embrace Relief’s program (or Accessible Computer Technology for Under-Served Students (ACT-US) has provided over 7,000 students in Uganda and Tanzania with 324 educationally pre-installed computers.

Coupling education with self-sufficiency, these computers come pre-installed with programs to teach its users things like math, writing, and science as well as agriculture, sanitation, and personal finance. They can also be remotely updated from headquarters in California and Nairobi, Kenya, as they are equipped with Endless OS technology.

Digital literacy and education are the foundation blocks of a successful society. With it comes a thriving economy, agriculture, less disease and illness, and a higher quality of life. Furthermore, this ACT-US aligns with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal #4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning.

In April 2020, a ceremony will take place to mark the completion of Phase 1 of ACT-US. In attendance will be representatives from the U.S. Embassy in Uganda, the African Union, the Nile Humanitarian Development Agency (NHDA), the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of ICT, all of whom have played an integral part in making this program possible.

Phase 2 of ACT-US will see over 1,000 computers being delivered, expanding its reach to include Kenya and Ethiopia which will reach tens of thousands of students in Africa.
