Making e-learning accessible in Sierra Leone

The Closing the Gap eClasses project in Sierra Leone is in the process of establishing 10 eClasses across primary and secondary schools located in the Moyamba District of Sierra Leone.
 This will allow access to over 12,000 students (during the equipment’s life cycle), which will help them to gain IT literacy skills critical to the next stage of their education and securing higher-skilled jobs in the future
The project is enabling our local partners (Njala University) to deliver training to at least 3 educators per school. This partnership will also allow senior students of Njala University to support the project whilst gaining an internship from the university for their role in the program. This serves two purposes, because it provides valuable work-experience to the interning university students and allows them to support the schools in the project throughout the year. They also will gain valuable certification and provide remote and hands-on technical assistance, survey data collection for M&E and project coordination.
The following report will explore the activities and outputs delivered at the schools so far, in addition to any programmatic changes that have occurred in the project timeline. This will follow with a brief look at how the outcomes will be monitored and what the next steps for the project are.
