Nigeria: empowering children in Lagos State Primary Schools through access to an after school Computer Club
The first L4L Computer Club was opened in Kuramo Primary School, Victoria Island, Lagos. All the teachers received technical and soft skills training and a small group selected to run the club which is open to all children in classes 4-6. The club operates after school hours Monday-Friday. Club activities include getting to know and use the computer to create documents, communicate with others far and near, research for information, play games, sharing and learning from each other, networking.
The club is housed in a classroom officially donated to L4L by the education authorities. The classroom has been totally renovated to provide a colourful and creative environment for the children. The L4L Computer Club in Kuramo has been sponsored by Flour Mills of Nigeria and the clubhouse is known as the Golden Penny Club House.
