Computers for new Community Information Center in rural Ghana

Requested by

NANA MINTAA YEBOA FOUNDATION

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Foundation is trying to help the needy and vulnerable children in rural Ghana. A primary school of about one hundred and eighty children have access to only seven computers not connected to the internet. In view of this, the Foundation is trying to bridge the digital divide in this rural Ghana.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project is that we have built a big Community Information Center which comprises of five big halls, printer, scanner, one office and four toilet facility at Acherensua (a rural area) in the newly created Asutifi South District of the Brong-Ahafo Region of Ghana. We are furnishing these halls with computers with internet facility.

The center is being used to

  • train children and the youth with IT skills
  • enable farmers to identify new methods of farming, sources for purchasing seeds and marketing agencies
  • inform traders in the community according to their profession

How can other people partner with you on your project?

We are requesting for partners to help us acquire more computers to furnish the four remaining halls for more children, youth, farmers and traders to benefit from the facility.

Please detail the resources that you need.
