malawi denmark tminds volunteers English

Danish version

In this way, a single computer or laptop can reach hundreds of youths that would likely otherwise lack access to information technology in their education.

The equipment ...

The purpose of the funding is both to enable the travel of volunteers to go as far as 300 km, but also to transport equipment and upgrades to all of these centres in the same swoop.

malawi ewaste

Sub-Saharan countries, for instance Rwanda or Kenya, have responsible e-waste recycling. This is both evidence that it can work, and an indirect call: It is time to have such capacity in Malawi!

However, it is not yet a reality. But we are very encouraged after a April/May 2018 tour, having discussed this at several levels. Both local entrepreneurs can play a role, and so can established businesses. We are ...

malawi mzuzu Danish

I september 2013, lancerede FAIR et projekt i samarbejde med Mzuzu University (Mzuni) i det nordlige Malawi. Projektmodellen var en fortsættelse af ideen fra vores første pilotprojekt, hvori ændringen især bestod af, at lokale kræfter skulle forenes for at skabe et bæredygtigt miljø, der kunne ernære IT-centre til uddannelse. Ikke mindst involverede projektet også det malawianske Undervisningsministeries regionale undervisningsmyndigheder.

Den store nyhed og succeshistorie i dette indlæg, handler dog ikke ...
