We are so glad to see our friends from Mzuzu University in Malawi participating in the +Computer Science For High School program, having trained 20 computer studies teachers.

Having visited by coincidence, we saw presentations by students that the teachers were trained to teach. The students have very little access to computers, meaning that they do not own their own devices, but access computers through the ICT project with Mzuni and FAIR. The students showed great understanding of programming, spreadsheets, and databases. And we are happy that they are learning all these things with open source software!

Big thanks to Google for this very positive program and to Mzuzu University and their lecturers for their dedication and outreach!

The pictures are from the final day of presentations and a student contest involving 18 students, following the teacher training.

Thanks to +NOVASOL Danmark for letting their ICT equipment be refurbished by FAIR to benefit youths in secondary schools in Malawi!

We need more brave companies like them who are willing to let their equipment help others! If you are interested to have your company join us, look at our website fairdanmark.dk and get in touch with info@fairdanmark.dk

Mchinji District ICT Centre in Malawi is producing new students all the time! These students had taken a 3 month free intensive course provided by NICE volunteers, having never used a computer before. We were shocked to see how extremely ICT literate they had become! Every day they go to the center Mon-Fri, training word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and information searching. This is a game-changer for the students, since most schools don't have ICT access and higher-order educations are for the selected few.

Had a great time at +ITUniversitetet telling students about ICT for development (ICT4D) - hoping to have more academic focus on the subject and our organization is open and welcoming students who want to help us by using our work and network as a case.

The workshop is ready and for the next incoming equipment! We've spent a whole Sunday having fun tidying it: New labels and categories were made, and all our many spare parts are sorted out.

Possible because of Mzuzu University ICT Dept, National Initiative for Civic Education (NICE), volunteers in Denmark & Malawi, secondary schools sharing the vision, and the equipment we receive from our collaborators. Thanks to all!

And big thanks to "Genbrug til Syd" for the video and the support of the project.

Any thoughts on this? We're feeling sceptical...
