Information Technology and the use of computer specifically has long become the new global norm in this technology-driven age which has made it essential for both the children at our center and other children within the rural communities to learn how to use computer devices. April this year, an ICT training facility comprising of Ten (10) computer systems was set up to promote computer learning, skills, and appreciation within the children from an early age.
Due to the high cost of ICT facilities, frequent electricity interruptions, lack of ICT facilities & manpower in public schools and lack of maintenance culture, over 60% of Nigerian children do not have access to ICT training in public schools, and that is why this project is very significant.
The children at the centre have continually expressed their joy and excitement over the opportunity to sit before a computer and learn how to use it effectively.
The project came alive with the total support of Children Philanthropy and Karan Tilani, Singapore.
