One of the projects Close the Gap recently supported with donated IT material is a school in Luisha, a village 80km from Lubumbashi, the second largest city in Democratic Republic of Congo.
In total, 20 desktop PCs, 7 laptops and 4 printers were installed in the school. The 1000 students of the school are very excited about this brand new computer class, which is intensively occupied all day. With this IT class, students will now be able to further develop their digital skills and to take part in the digital world. Every student that has now access to IT is a step closer to bridging the digital divide.
The next step for the school is to install an internet connection, so that the students can also use the computers to explore the web.
