The results are in from a long-term study of the effectiveness of Camara’s work in Ethiopia, and they are truly impressive. This project was made possible thanks to funding from our partners @Dell Technologies. From May 2018 to October 2021 we compared the results of five secondary schools that had been provided with computers and training by Camara in partnership with Dell Technologies against schools which had not. In the impact schools studied, there was a dramatic increase in pass rates in Grade 10 Physics and Maths exams. The proportion of students who reported having good ICT skills increased from 13% to 84% over three academic years, while teachers’ assessment of their own ICT skills also nearly doubled. Meanwhile, school dropout rates halved, against a slight increase in dropout rates in the control schools. #GirlsinICT #DellTechnologies #CamaraEducation #EducationAfrica ... See MoreSee Less
