Through ACT-US(Accessible Computer Technology for Underserved Students) Embrace Relief will provide thousands of students in Tanzania and Uganda the ability to earn an education while also increasing their digital literacy.
Embrace Relief has provided 324 computers with the Endless OS pre-installed to local K-12 schools in sub-Saharan Africa. With these computers, students can now study basic educational subjects and life skills, as well as learn Information and Communications Technology skills without needing access to the internet. With your support, we plan to expand our program to reach more underserved students throughout Africa. Our next focus areas include Kenya and Ethiopia.
Technology Without Boundaries
Endless OS Computers are designed to combat the limitations of education due to a lack of access to technology in developing countries. These computers do not need the internet to work, have the ability to be updated remotely, and are cost and power-efficient. Most importantly, they are simple to use.
Endless Learning Potential
Every computer comes with pre-installed educational programs through Endless OS. These programs cover a wide variety of subjects to increase students’ knowledge in various academic areas. Beyond that, Endless OS also includes programs centered on life skills, including farming, personal finance management, and personal hygiene skills
Together, these computers expand the accessibility of education in sub-Saharan Africa, which enables these students to advance their personal and communal development.
