Botswana: school children now able to access curriculum materials

On 13 September, children from the Sedibe primary school in the village of Damochujenaa (Central District) will discover their school curriculum for the first time!
Our Digital Schools are arriving in Botswana to improve access to education for isolated schools with no access to educational materials.

 

 

We have digitized educational content for all primary school subjects. Pupils access this content using our digital kit (made up of tablets and an offline server).

Before the start of term, the teachers take part in a three-day training workshop to learn how to use the digital kit, following which they are awarded a certificate of completion at a ceremony.
As in the other African countries in which we are active, our programme is carried out in collaboration with the ministry for local government and rural development, and the ministry of education.
A ceremony attended by local representatives and the Orange Foundation in Botswana marked the official launch of the programme in the country, which is also being deployed to Moshopha, Mmanoko, Dikgonnye and Ntlhantlhe.
