Bringing modern technology to rural Zambia

Connect Africa and iSchool Zambia are delivering improved education and community services in and around 6 primary schools in the Mwandi District of Zambia, one of the poorest and most isolated rural communities in Africa.

The Mwandi project is being funded by a generous 3-year grant from The Peter Cundill Foundation; it will measure the improvements to educational standards and community development that can result from deploying modern technology into a rural setting.

Together, we are providing the children with access to improved education, using solar powered computer tablets, offering the entire primary school curriculum in English and the local Lozi languages. We are also providing internet connectivity and offer support and training to the teachers on the ground.


This website is not currently being updated, but serves as a record of the Mwandi project. Phase 2 of the programme is currently under discussion.
