A Spanish nongovernmental organisation (NGO), ProFuturo, has undertaken to electrify and equip schools in Lupane and Gwanda districts with Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) gadgets.
This was revealed by Primary and Secondary Education Minister, Paul Mavima, during a public lecture at the United College of Education last week. He said:
As I speak I’m not worried about Lupane District and Gwanda District because an organisation that we spoke with from Spain called ProFuturo has adopted all the schools in those districts.
They are going to put e-learning platforms and devices.
They have already done some schools but I think by September they would have covered all the schools in those two districts.
This also means that ProFuturo is also coming with an obligation where there is no electricity they will put an electricity solution in those schools.
Mavima said that about 40 per cent of schools in the country are without electricity, though in Bulawayo 90 per cent of the schools are digitised.
