WHAT IS IT ABOUT ?

  • IT literacy is a critical skill for enhancing economic progress, for
    individuals and communities in Africa.
    AIESEC Africa designed a program which enabled high school
    students to gain IT skills, focused on their productivity, job
    readiness, and ultimately, quality of life (EAP Program)
  • It is run in 13 universities across Nine countries (Nigeria, Ghana,
    Ivory Coast, Togo, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Tanzania, and
    Kenya)
  • Here in Ghana it is run in two AIESEC Universities (AIESEC CUC & AIESEC KNUST) where the children undergo training in Information and communication learning
    clubs

Project Objectives

  • To provide information technology knowledge to some of our
    high school youth who may not have the accessibility to
    computers up till an older age.
  • Involving high school teachers in the training of their students in
    their schools providing them with the needed skills to disseminate
    the information to the rest of the students.
  • Providing students with a very exiting and quality and diverse
    cultural platform to gain computer skills while learning about
    different cultures and leadership skills
  • Train 4000 children and establish two ICT centres by the end of
    year.
  • Develop a sustainable and scalable project.
