Bringing Digital Literacy to Sub-Saharan Africa

By June 19, 2019 No Comments

In sub-Saharan Africa, very little of the population has access to computers or the internet, not to mention the wealth of information stored on both. Approximately 32.6 million primary-school aged children and over 25.7 million adolescents do not, or are unable to attend school. Emerging technology and advances in infrastructure now offer low-cost teaching resources, providing greater inclusion and improved education quality.

This fall, Embrace Relief is donating over 300 brand new computer processing units (CPU) that will be delivered to Tanzania and Kenya. Unfortunately, the CPU does not include a monitor, keyboard, or mouse which are needed to utilize it. These 3 items cost only $70, which comes out to a total of $22,680 that needs to be fundraised.  

Through support and contributions from donors, we hope to reach this goal in time to have the full units in Tanzania and Kenya by this fall. Bringing this technology and educational programs to these countries means further educating the world so we can all see and experience a brighter future.
