From Febuary 2014, Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO) in partnership with Maendeleo Foundation Uganda will be extending Mobile Solar Computer classes to Kikandwa Church of Uganda Primary School and Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary school. Both schools are based in rural communities of Mukono District in Uganda and they lack electricity and a great number of things for proper learning of their pupils. Based on the innovative solar technologies that Maendeleo Foundation Uganda utilizes, the pupils of the two schools will be able to be trained in computer skills right at their respective locations.
By donating $5, you will be able to help a pupil to attend computer lessons for three months (academic term) or $15 for the entire academic year of three terms. In the first phase of our partnership, we are planning to reach to 50 pupils in each school which total to 100 pupils all together and which will cost a total of $500. The whole academic year (three academic terms) will cost a total of $1,500 If you are interested in supporting this project, just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we shall be grateful for your support to help rural poor schools to have access to technology within their vicinity.
