Kyaithani Cluster School Project gets Rotary Canada grant

In August 2015, the Government of Canada agreed to provide The Rotary Foundation Canada (TRFC) with funding for the next 5 years to support international humanitarian projects.  Grant applications could be submitted starting October 1st.

We are happy to report that our project was the first Canadian project to receive this new Canadian Government grant funding.

As a resut of this extra funding, we will be able to expand our project deliverables.  Instead of providing only a few computers to start a small computer lab at Kyaithani Secondary School, we will be able to implement a full computerized Learning Resource Centre at both Kyaithani Secondary School and Lower Yatta Secondary School (the 2 secondary schools within the Kyaithani Cluster of area schools).

Each Learning Resource Centre is expected to have 20 student computers with a large local/offline repository of educational and vocational material as well as internet connectivity.

Below is a photo of a Learning Resource Centre that we will be modelling our own centers after.

Thank you TRFC and Government of Canada!
