Laptops for Mombasa County Secondary School Students

Coastweek-- Secondary schools students in Mombasa County began receiving laptop computers Saturday morning as part of a Jielimishe GEC initiative to improve physical infrastructure of schools and ensuring girls attend school, stay in school, and learn, writes TAURA MWAREMA.

There was celebration as teachers from 7 secondary schools received over 100 mecer notebooks on behalf of their schools at Aga Khan Academy, Mombasa.

In this second phase of the issue, each school received 15 laptops, 15 headphones and a wifi router.

The benefiting schools: Mtopanga, Maweni, Mbaraki, Sacred Heart, Kajembe, Hassan Joho and Makande had earlier each received mini speakers, three projectors and three white projecting screens.

“This will improve the quality of teaching and learning, changing education focus from content to competence,” said Gibson Mwaita, the project manager.

Star of The Sea and Chang-amwe were the first secondary schools to receive the ICT equipment during the first phase, the pilot phase of Jielimishe GEC project.

Jielimishe GEC (Girl Education Challenge) is a UKAID funded project that seeks to improve school attendance, targeting marginalized girls in classes 4 to 8 (primary school) and form 1 and 2 (secondary school).

It operates in three counties in Kenya: Meru, Laikipia and Mombasa. In Mombasa it targets a total of 3566 girls.

It earlier organized sensiti-zation workshops in the county that saw over 30 teachers acquire Microsoft certification.

This was part of teacher preparation for the project execution.
