Project status: Ongoing

Country: Nigeria

Partner: Zee Tech Foundation

Impact goal: 200 people

About the project

Bauchi State, located in north-eastern Nigeria, faces significant challenges in terms of digital access and educational opportunities. According to recent statistics, approximately 75% of the population in Bauchi L.G.A lacks access to computers and the internet. This digital divide hampers students' ability to explore educational resources, engage in online learning, and acquire crucial digital skills. Furthermore, only a limited number of schools in the area have computer labs, which are often overcrowded and insufficient to cater to the needs of all students. The EDASE project aims to address these gaps by providing a dedicated STEM lab equipped with computers and internet connectivity.

Updates

The ICT-lab is and laptops are ready to be used. Camera, router, desks, chairs and computers have been installed. Zee Tech Foundation is now ready to welcome students, which will happen starting in the third week of January.
