Ten More Computer Labs Because of the success of our pilot lab, we are expanding this project. We have identified a handful of schools that are enthusiastic about this opportunity and have the volunteers and the space required to be a successful part of this project. With your support, we will install ten new computer labs, serving an estimated 2,000 rural Africans this year. Each lab will be complete with ten or more workstations and updated content, all served over WiFi.Read more

We are more than just access, we ensure effective use.
We believe that everyone deserves a level playing field, and that redistribution and adoption of technology is the most effective equalizer. We level the playing field for families in Africa by building computer labs in their local schools, equipped with games, videos and lessons from our open-source curriculum software. Our research leads us to believe that this will increase GDP, decrease unemployment and improve the quality of life for any African country we partner with.
Rough estimates tell us that there could be dozens of millions of upgraded computer workstations in the United States every year. Many companies will destroy and recycle these machines unless they have an easy alternative. We put used technology like computers and networking equipment to use by placing them in African schools.
We distribute computers to schools in Africa. These computers are equipped with all the things you would find in a first-rate computer lab.
We accept laptops, desktops, monitors, keyboards, mice and network switches.
Education should be preparing students for the skills that's asked 5 -10 years from now and everyone deserves access to it.
More schools should reach beyond the 21st century, no matter where
An old laptop changed my life ten years ago, reusing forgotten technology to help others is a goal that all of us can share without any barriers
I grew up poor and education was my way out. I went from being a kid with no economic chance at college to holding a Master's degree in cyber security and giving back as an adjunct professor of Digital Forensics. I am a firm believer that education can change lives and that is why I support Nelly and her team at TechLit Africa. The entire cyber security industry should get behind this movement to impact the world and educate the next generation of cyber warriors.
