Camara Education, an organization engaged in the provision of ICT items and training to instructors and schools has partnered with Dell and Computer Aid to reach remote schools in Kenya with e-learning.
According to a news source, Camara Education works under a social undertaking model and aims to ease the requirements schools confront when trying to implement ICT-based exercises.
Notably, in the previous week, the foundation took its program to Kajiado Country where two schools, Al-Huda Muslim Primary, and Ngong Township Primary were recipients of an ICT-in-education venture.
New computers were set up in classrooms and solar-powered PC labs. The use of green energy makes the project an eye-catching one since it finds application even in regions such as Ngong.
The installed computers utilize under 4 percent of power when compared to PC that is connected to hydropower.
Thurs Sep 6th saw the launch of an e-learning project by Camara Education w/ partners @Dell4Good & @Computer_Aid in Kajiado County Kenya. This involved the setup of computers in classrooms & solar-powered labs. Read more about this exciting project here: https://t.co/QMhxg1ObVf. pic.twitter.com/zthgcT5dxW

Mr. Mayquva Wanjala, the Principal of Al-Huda Muslim Primary School expressed delight at being a part of the recent Camara campaign.
“This task will positively affect the community, and I am certain the young ones will understand their dreams through research, involvement, and systems administration. It is the best thing to me that can happen to a visionary society,” he told the publication.
Camara Education Continues To Take ICT Based Learning To Schools
“The association with Dell, Computer Aid, and the Kenyan government has developed another lesson,” noted Mr. Daniel Oloo, the Camara Education Country Manager for Kenya.
“We have been working with schools in over five nations in Africa for more than ten years, and we are exceptionally eager to be a piece of this task in Kenya, making utilization of sustainable power source and a mix of technologies to help these schools. This is an awesome stage for students and educators alike, and we are anticipating seeing the instructive effect of the task.” Added Ms. Lotta Kinnunen, Camara Education’s Head of Africa Operations.
Together with Dell and the Ministry of Education, Camara said it picked learning foundations based on criteria. For example, an absence of access to power and area (if near an underserved network).
Dell gave PCs and their related peripherals that were then sent by Camara Education. The solar-based program is supporting the execution of the Digital Literacy Program by the Kenyan Government (DLP) that expects to increase access to ICT abilities in each of the 23,951 public primary schools in the nation.
Kenya’s DLP focuses on the use of digital technologies to make a positive impact in the community. The venture expects to convey in excess of 1.2 million gadgets in a range of two years at the cost of Kes 29 billion.
