The project aims to provide free access to computer education for young people and adults in Ghana who cannot afford the high cost of computer education. The government of Ghana recently introduced computer education in the school curriculum that makes it compulsory for every child to have access to computer education but this has been faced with lots of challenges such as lack of teachers and resources.
The computer training programs seek to provide basic computer skills and encourage computer education in Ghana. Like children throughout the world, Ghanaian children and adults are fascinated by computers, and are eager to learn how to use them. Teaching such a useful skill is invaluable, both to individuals and the communities they live in. The project will benefit children and adults to find themselves in a position where they can benefit from all that the worldwide web has to offer.
