In May 2022 MTCF paid for WiFi installation at Lobethal Primary School. That enabled the children to use the tablets donated by U.K. based Redmaids Girls School. Also, to aid the children’s development of information and communication technology (ICT) skills, MTCF gave one year funding for a teacher’s post.
There are five primary schools and one secondary school in that region. Only one of them has donated tablets. The rest have neither computers, laptops nor tablets.
In all the schools, only a small number of the children come from homes where a member of the extended family owns a mobile phone.
