Primary schools embrace technology


By Chimwemwe Mangazi:

Learners in rural areas have a chance to become technologically advanced following the launch of a project that will result in the construction of computer labs and interactive software in primary schools.

Israel-based Future Through Education Fund (FTEF) is implementing the project.


“The pilot phase has targeted four primary schools in Lilongwe, attracting investment of over $100,000, but we will reach out to every primary school in Malawi in the next 10 years.

“We intend to introduce these labs in government schools and want to reach all six divisions of the education sector and encompass 50 schools from each division. We want basic learning to be done using ICT equipment such as computers,” said Isaac

Mazaza Jere, FTEF Chief Executive Officer.


Meanwhile, Principal Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Justin Saidi, has welcomed the initiative.

“This is very important because, as long as you teach and use the right methods, learners do not forget what they see and we are happy that many Malawian children will benefit from this initiative.

“We have encouraged them to take the technology to all schools in the country so that we don’t leave anyone behind,” Saidi said.
