The Solar Learning Lab at Bokamoso School, is creating a unique space for learning, and the opportunity for students to learn 21st-century skills.
The labs will be managed and training delivered by local partner Code for Change South Africa. They work to bridge the skills gap in the ICT job market in South Africa by training students in skills ranging from PC Basics to intermediate coding, and IT Technician workshops. Their intensive, hands-on training programs empower and develop young people to be competent in ICT and enable them to use their skills to find purposeful employment and enhance the quality of their lives. Change the World will deliver the Dell Youth Learning program to leverage the technology of the Solar Learning Lab in most inclusive and impactful way for students of Bokamoso School.
A lack of up-to-date learning resources prevents Bokamoso’s students from accessing the same opportunities as their peers affecting their competitiveness and confidence levels when enrolling in further education. The project will break this cycle and show Bokamoso School that their students deserve the best innovative spaces and tools for learning, bridging the digital divide in communities where this would have the greatest impact.
