Camara’s team of riders all successfully completed the challenging London to Brighton bike ride last weekend – making it up the fearsome Ditchling Beacon at the end. We also smashed our fundraising target, so will be installing an eLearning Centre at Mazinde Day School in the small town of Mazinde, Tanzania, and providing training and support to the school for four years.
There’s still plenty of work to do there and elsewhere, though, so it’s not too late to show your apprecation for our riders by sponsoring their efforts here.
We’ve recently completed an eLearning centre installation at Kurasini Secondary School in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The work was carried out thanks to Helios Towers Tanzania, who provided computers along with funding to cover the renovation of the room, networking, teacher training and other project activities. Kurasini is one of the schools where Helios has installed a telecom tower, serving several of its clients in Tanzania.
The centre was officially opened on November 25th 2022 by Helios Tower Tanzania’s managing director, Gwakisa Stadi, along with Anna Marika, representative of the district executive director. Camara trained 38 teachers for five days and provided ICT awareness training for 120 students.
From the beginning of this term, students at the school have had Computer and Information Studies available to them as part of their curriculum.
Helios Towers is a leading independent telecommunications infrastructure company, focused on driving the growth of mobile communications across Africa and the Middle East. Their principal business is building, acquiring and operating telecommunications towers that can accommodate and power the needs of the regions’ major mobile network operators. As the leading independent towerco in Tanzania, Helios Towers supports mobile operators as they expand their coverage across the country.
These are some of the steps involed in putting the centre together:
