Bringing teacher trainees online in Uganda
Our local partners at the African SOUP believe that "Quality education leads to empowered communities." The team serves 16-21-year-old teacher trainees who hope to become primary school teachers after two years of training.
During the COVID lockdown, as our partner tried to engage the teachers through online learning platforms and implement ICT learning, they discovered that none of the students owned computers and only 25% owned smartphones.
To start, we are raising funds to purchase 100 laptops that will be handed over to the college computer laboratory. The teacher trainees will have the chance to access the computers during their time at the college and carry the computers to their hostels where there will have access to electricity and a reliable Internet connection.
For inventory management and accountability, students would sign for the computer from the computer laboratory staff. The computer would be checked and scanned regularly in order to prevent any computer damage or virus.
On average, we would spend $390 per computer while the Internet fee may vary between $100 to $150.
