Love them or hate them, it is hard to imagine life without computers and the wealth of knowledge that they give us, particularly through access to the internet.

 

Yet the vast majority of children in Burkina Faso, even those lucky enough to go to school, have never had access to a PC.  We know this has a huge impact on their learning and future opportunities and we are determined to change that by getting more computers into schools in Burkina..

 

Change has already begun. Meet Mary Ouedraogo (pictured), a 13 year old pupil at the Stafford Centre just outside the capital Ouagadougou, one of the schools we support.  Three months ago a new computer laboratory was installed in the Stafford Centre, the first of its kind in our schools.  Since it arrived Mary's learrning and that of her school mates has been transformed.

 

We would love to be able to install 18 PC computer laboratories in all 10 schools we support and we are asking UK schools and churches, this harvest, to consider helping.  Could you raise the £150 required to place another computer in a school in Burkina Faso?


Can yiou help to give more pupils like Mary the chance to transform their learning and futures by opening the world wide web for them?
