In the southern section of Senegal known as the Casamance, a school is seeking our assistance with providing and installing a solar-powered irrigation system. Once installed, the irrigation system will sustain the school's banana farm from which students are taught how to become self-sustainable by developing marketable trade skills. The cost of the system is estimated at approximately US$10,000. Read the Project Info Sheet for more information.
Starting with AEDEC, a school populated by over 2000 middle and high school students from all over Africa, we have been working hard to get computers accessible to people in Africa. We feel that access to computers brings people one step closer to equality worldwide. Access to the Internet brings information to people's fingertips, communication to the farthest reaches of the Earth, and removes many of the limitations put on various civilizations by a lack of technology. This is an ongoing effort, and one well worth exploring. Thank you for your support.
