18.03.16

Aurora foundation in partnership with SAMSKIP and Idt labs conducted a free ICT training course in March for 85 people in Freetown, Sierra Leone. The target group was young people at the age of 18-35. The 85 successful applicants participated in a five day course where they got training in the use of the internet and the main Microsoft applications such as Excel and Word. At the end of the course all applicants received a Certificate and a surprise gift from SAMSKIP but all participants received a free computer. All the participants were very grateful for this opportunity and extremely pleased with the donation in the end. Some so this as a great opportunity to improve their IT skills whilst others where having their first introduction to the IT world.

This project was a pilot project by the Aurora Foundation, a pilot that really exceated our expectations. It is therefore our hope that we will be able to get other companies involved and interested in donating computers so we can replicate this project, as we have many more young people eager to participate.
