Project - Information - Objectives

The main project objectives are:

  • to give the youth of cabilao the chance to become computer literates
  • Teaching of IT basic computer literacy
  • Teaching non IT subjects (CITE e-learning tools)
  • generate income for the school and the community

How to reach the objectives:

Computer laboratory

We have installed a computer laboratory (5 PCs, which are networked). All PCs have installed the basic Microsoft Office Products. Due to the fact, that the students in these areas have no IT know-how at all, the main focus of the education will be put on teaching basic computer literacy. We did a trainers training already (see project history).Additionally there should be installed some e-learning products, which contains course of IT and non-IT subjects like Work ethics, housekeeping, Workshop safety, wiring, building wiring, basics in IT etc.

Internet café

The school will be using the computers at school hours only. The rest of the days the laboratory is available for further use like Internet café or adult education. The first month of operation show us already that the internet cafe is used by locals and toursits. That means the school is already generating income. Furthermore the tourists are going to the internet cafe via local transport (mortorcycle). That means even there is an increase of the income.
