History

Computers for Schools Uganda(CfSU) is an indigenous not for profit organization that was started in 2008  with a primary purpose of ensuring that Ugandans (particularly educational institutions and the community) access ICT and use it sustainably for improved education delivery.  The organization is supplementing on government programs of ensuring quality education through the provision of ICT equipment to schools, maintain the equipment and also train teachers to use the equipment for teaching/learning and management.

The beginnings

Initially, CfSu’s core business involved  distributing, maintaining  and repairing IT equipment and restoring it to usable conditions for schools to utilize. This was at a small scale and computers would be distributed to selected parts of the country.

Moving forword

A few years into operations, CfSU embarked on a rigorous strategy to bring more schools on board. Awareness compaigns were conducted to enable stakeholders know the importance of ICT in schools. This led to an increased demand for ICT equipment and other related services. Soon CfSU was able to adapt a computer take back program for obsolete computers for proper handling and dismantling.

Excellence in ICT for education

In the latter years, CfSU put more emphasis on the value addition of the computers. Different types of trainings were adopted and tailored to suit the different needs of the schools. Basic, advanced and technical trainings were organized in different schools to equip teachers with the skill on how to utilize the computer for their day-to-day work. To further add value to the computer, labs were networked with Local Area and Wireless networks so that schools would easily access and share information.
