Titre : Introducing Computers and the Internet to Students in Koudougou (Burkina Faso)

Pays : Burkina Faso

Date : 2013

Présentation
In 2012 and 2013, the Lycée Provincial à Koudougou (LPK) developed an innovative computer-science curriculum, thanks to the leadership of I.T. faculty members a Peace Corps volunteer (PCV) assigned to the high school as well as some financial and technical support from the Friends of Burkina Faso. During this two-year period, over 250 students acquired basic computer skills and were exposed to the Internet for the first time. Enterprising students became teaching assistants. Others learned how to repair computers and/or helped manage the lab. Earnings from sales of refurbished computers to residents of Koudougou generated revenue, enabling the I.T. program to purchase needed equipment.
