Hi my name is Alice. I’m based in East London, South Africa but at present I am working for the Buffleshoek Trust (an NPO – http://www.buffelshoektrust.co.za) in rural Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga RSA where I am working in 9 schools to set up and develop the capacity to support access to and sustainable use of 11 computer labs there. The work involves developing the skills and capacity (end user and basic technical skills) of out of school youth to provide in-school ICT support services. The youth are then installed in the schools within the communities where they live to man the labs as the educators there do not have the skills nor the time to do this. This creates a scenario that not only facilitates learner and educator use but also enables and support use by other community stakeholders. The youth are receiving ongoing mentoring and training on-site.
I am keen to chat with Thembinkosi and others in interested in unlocking rural and urban futures through the effective use of ICTs.
