The e-Learning for Kids foundation is making its complete digital educational programme available for Viafrica. e-Learning for Kids aims at providing access to education for as many children from five to eighteen years of age as possible. To date, the organisations has developed over 220 interactive e-learning programmes, that are available for free and have in the meantime been used by more than five million children.
Electronic waste (e-waste) is an ever-growing problem in Africa. The hardware Viafrica supplies to schools and other clients, will finally break down there. Because Viafrica does not want to increase the e-waste problem, we already started negotiations with possible partners a while ago to come to a solution for this. That is not simple, because local processing is still in its infancy in Africa. Some parts cannot be processed locally and therefore have to be shipped to Europe to be processed here.
In 2010, a proposal was submitted to the EU Energy Facility for establishing 50 multifunctional ICT centres based on solar energy in The Gambia, Zambia and Tanzania under the flag of NICE International. For the twenty NICE Centres planned in Tanzania, Viafrica Tanzania is the local partner. Meanwhile the proposal has been approved and the preparations are in full swing.
