SE Outreach Accelerator success

Maendeleo – SE Forum Showcase

October 6, 2014 - News

SE Forum is happy to announce that Asia Kamukama and Maendeleo Foundation, one of our SE Outreach Accelerator alumni, was one of the recipients of the 2014 SEED awards.

“The Mobile Solar Computer Classroom” is helping bridge the digital divide in Uganda by making computer skills accessible, affordable, and relevant to rural schools and community libraries in Uganda. The enterprise uses solar powered computers – housed in modified SUV vehicles fitted with solar panels – to bring its technology to its trainees. A digital literacy curriculum is delivered to each participating venue over the course of two years.

SE Forum is very proud to have helped Asia Kamukama and Zabbinah Nakirya at Maendeleo Foundation through our Outreach Accelerator program and we wish them continued success. Do you have an idea which might have the same social impact as “The Mobile Solar Computer Classroom”, or even greater? Then please make sure you apply to the 2015 Outreach Accelerator program at SE Forum. Applications are now open until November 2nd.
