At SLF we're passionate about providing high quality information and resources that help students learn and develop the skills they need to make the most of everyday life.
In our research, when we visit many schools in Uganda, we find that computers are rotting away with cobwebs; the teachers do not know how to use them.
Computers have been taken there but there is no ongoing mentorship and support to ensure that people are able to use these computers.
When students learn basic skills on how to put on and turnoff a computer, how to use Microsoft word to type a document, the course content ends there.
SLF wants to get professionals to go to each and every school and have just only two hours a month to teach students and teachers on how to get life skills using these computers, which skills are on demand globally especially when internet is growing rapidly and people want to do info graphics.
We help finance an expert to visit schools and teach people how to make money using computers e.g. programing, networking and life skills like designing websites and brochures etc.
Another problem is schools have computers but cannot sustain internet payment because they are not making use of it. SLF therefore is to impact practical skills so that people have got ready skills to begin moving and earning money on the job.
Your contribution and support towards this project will enable us give skills to the young generation that would turn around their thinking and even begin making them earn money on those kinds of computers which they have.
