Rwanda is the fifth country to launch the project after Uganda, Ghana, Lesotho and Kenya and the first to complete implementation in all six schools. “I congratulate all the stakeholders in this pioneering initiative in the education of our children and teachers. There is no doubt about our support for the NEPAD e-Schools Project and Rwanda will build on what has been achieved to date to make the project successful”, said President Kagame.
The NEPAD e-Schools Project is led by the NEPAD e-Africa Commission, the NEPAD information and communication technology (ICT) task team responsible for developing the NEPAD ICT programme and implementing related projects. The project focuses on providing end-to-end ICT solutions that will connect schools across Africa to the NEPAD e-Schools network and includes the provision of content, learning material and the establishment of health points at schools.
Said Dr Henry Chasia, the Executive Deputy Chairperson of the NEPAD e-Africa Commission : “This is the first time that African governments, NEPAD and the private sector are cooperating on an ICT project of this scale and scope in the NEPAD framework, developed and driven by Africans, for African people”
