Project Hope Namibia donates computer tablets to the Oshikoto Education Directory

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.
