Tetrefu ICCES is one of the oldest ICCES in Ghana and one of the best established. It recently celebrated its 30th anniversary.
The Turing Trust has been working with Tetrefu ICCES for many years and ICT is well embedded into the curriculum. They were one of the first ICCES to have an ICT club. Their first computer lab was small and cramped – but despite this students were keen to learn from their inspirational ICT teacher, Enoch Otabil and the ICT club flourished.
Teachers and students at Tetrefu were determined to improve the facilities available for ICT. They worked hard to raise the funds and then contributed time, labour and skills. The electrical students learnt how to install an air-conditioning unit in the new lab – something that will improve learning conditions for both students and the IT equipment. They now have a purpose-built computer laboratory that opened in 2017 and which is being put to good use – not only teaching students how to use computers, but also how to maintain and repair them.
Do you have any IT equipment to donate?
Our community-owned, off-grid computer laboratory powered by solar energy and with low energy Raspberry Pi computers.
Our activities stem from our base in Edinburgh where we teach trainees how to refurbish IT equipment.
Our current focus is in Malawi, working with Centre for Youth and Development to provide technology-enabled education.
