We are proud to open our 25th e-Learning lab

We are proud to have completed our 25th e-Learning lab in collaboration with the Tag Rugby Trust (TRT). This is our second IT lab project in Zimbabwe, providing IT access and digital skills training to vulnerable young girls in Harare. The lab has been installed at a specially built centre for girls at the Harare Sports Club. The centre, built by Tag Rugby Trust has computers and laptops for young girls who participate in Tag’s programmes as well as for the local community to use.

The project will deliver a significant improvement in both the quality and increased quantity of IT teaching for the densely populated area providing: Scheduled classroom style training sessions, bookable individual sessions, safe internet usage, teacher training and training programmes on general IT usage. We expect to see an increase in the number of users accessing employment/education/training courses.
