Opportunity for secondary schools in Tanzania to get free Wi-Fi access through the iKnowledge programme.

The iKnowledge programme

The iKnowledge programme will equip up to 250 schools in rural and underserved areas of Tanzania with ICT infrastructure. This includes broadband internet via satellite, alongside provision of ICT training and educational content for teachers to apply straight to the classroom. Powered by resilient Ka-band satellite technology, delivery will be supported locally by education NGO Camara Education Tanzania and service provider Infinity Africa Network Ltd.

The year-long programme sets out to provide long term, measurable benefits to teachers in Tanzania. iKnowledge will improve quality levels of teaching in rural and remote areas in core curriculum subjects, alongside advancing teachers’ digital literacy through a sustainable training model.

A few spaces left

I understand the programme is starting to roll out, but there may still be a few spaces left in some areas. If this is relevant to you and you want information about how schools get involved contact me and I’ll pass on your request for further details.
