Affordable Computers & Technology For Tanzania's story

This loan may have higher risk but higher impact. Learn more here. Problem The standard of education in Tanzania is poor. Over 50% of children finishing primary school can barely read or write in Swahili, let alone English, and in rural areas the teacher student ratio can be as high as 89:1. Solution Implementing information and communication technology (ICT) in schools can improve learning across the curriculum and improve the quality of teaching. Affordable Computers & Technology For Tanzania (ACTT) has so far been providing hardware such as computers, projectors, printers, to schools at affordable prices. They are now providing maintenance and repairs to ICT technology and ICT training for teachers and students. A video on their work is here Impact & Loan Use The loan will allow ACTT to reach a wider population for training and products by opening two new distribution and training hubs and purchase of additional hardware.
