Vodafone has taken cognisance of the deplorable conditions under which most schools operate in this country. The company, in a bid to bridge the ICT void, had already made similar donations of computers to several institutions and particularly schools across the country.
It is our hope that we can serve all deprived schools and institutions in the country. We trust this token will go a long way to help the teaching and learning of ICT in Ghana's schools.
Vodafone believe that the geographical location of a child should not limit them in education. We will do a follow-up visit to find out if the computers are working well and the reasons for the donations are been adhered to.
We are willing to support also schools that do not have teachers for ICT and have donated a total of over 200 sets of refurbished computers.
