Project Hope Namibia has donated computer tablets to the Oshikoto Education Directory to be used by learners doing advanced-level studies.

According to the Education Directorate in Oshikoto Region, over 400 learners are registered for AS-level, and they estimate this will grow to about 1,000 learners next year.

Project organizers say they have realized that many AS-level students lack access to electronic devices, and thanks to the donation, they will now be able to download material and learn online.

Project Hope Namibia donated 100 tablets, sponsored by ICT Minister Dr. Peya Mushelenga.

Rosalia Indongo, Country Director for Project Hope Namibia, says the donation covers the needs of vulnerable learners at the AS-level, which is set to grow to about 1,000 learners with access to electronic devices.

"It will meet the needs of needy and vulnerable students, such as a specific group of adolescent girls and young women taking the AS level."

She added that because students were unable to attend school in 2019 and had to rely on online learning to complete their education, it is now easier for them to continue their education through the use of technology.
