With a mission to improve the IT knowledge and the general skills of the children in a conducive, fun filled environment L4L in conjunction with the Ovie Brume Foundation (OBF) organised a2-week Summer Club which held at the Clubhouse. The Summer Club ran from the26th of August to the 6th of September 2013 from 10am – 4pm (Monday to Friday).
Activities that took place during the camp included interactive computer training sessions, Soft skills/team building sessions, a Read-A-Thon, various skill acquisition sessions, an excursion to Cisco systems Inc. and host of other activities. All these were geared towards improving the children’s skills and knowledge.
From the evaluation exercise conducted by OBF the L4L team can say that a 20.8% improvement in IT knowledge was recorded at the Leventis-L4L Clubhouse Summer Club.
The Women’s Technology Empowerment Centre (W.TEC) in a show of support of the L4L project gave L4L scholarship slots to its 2013 Girls Residential Technology Camp. 11 year old Immaculate Mbata of LMLG Primary school represented the Leventis-L4L Clubhouse at the camp which held from the 11th to 24th of August, 2013. As part of the activities for the summer going forward the W.TEC camp will be a destination spot for the most active female Clubhouse participant in a school session.
