Problem Statement

The decision to establish this fifteen-years project was informed by the six core factors:
1. Our country’s desire to offer computer studies in all schools as a key parameter on the achievement of the set goals for vision 2030
2. High costs involved in the purchase and maintenance of computers and its accessories is indeed a hindrance to the schools that would like to have computer training centers.
3. A qualified computer instructor is an additional headache for these institutions
4. Most of the computer projects in the schools are done casually and require a professional touch that will bring real meaning and sense not as an exercise to pass time.
5. Willingness by well-wishers to support learning programs though get discouraged seeing the resources contributed going to waste and do not grow to help more projects come up.
6. Why should a student/pupil/child attend computer lessons for at least 4 years in high school/elementary school, only to retrain on basic computer application programs in college?

HOW WE DO IT

1. DIGITAL WORLD TOMORROW will sign an agreement with the educational institution agreeing that 15 computers and one printer shall be delivered to them not at the institutions cost nor will they pay for their purchase but will keep them under their custody.

4. To be eligible the interested educational institution shall have at least 300 students/pupils. The school shall collect ksh 50/week/student as computer maintenance fee which indeed translates to ksh 600/student/term of 3 months .This is on average half cost for most of academies that charge averagely ksh 1200/student/term as computer fee.

5. Income shall be spent as :
a) 10% reward to the school shall also cater for electricity power bills
b) 8% maintenance and repair
c) 35% administrative costs ( remuneration inclusive)
