Bridging
the digital divide

Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation

The mission of the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation is the pursuit of excellence in research, training, treatment and the prevention of HIV-related diseases and infections in South Africa. Close the Gap, together with its strategic partner Ricoh Netherlands, has installed 210 computer assets in several high schools in the country. All the computers will be used for  Kethuphila”, a programme that uses innovative interactive drama to reach primary school and pre-adolescent children. Through education and training, the programme promotes responsible life choices that lead to delayed sexual activity.

In 2012, President Obama visited the computer class of the Foundation.
