About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

As previously outlined the lack of understanding of the need of adaptability to better prepare children to be competitive led our critical thinking of creating this initiative and also to ensure an improvement of education system in DRC specially in Nyiragongo territory where the education level remained very low for decades.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

In the official program or curriculum established by the government I have included computer and English learninh. The contents of the lessons are adapted to the age and level of children's capacity to capture the knowledge. I have identified teachers who enhance the capacities of other teachers (classes principals) so that they can be able to continue practising with students in case those who teach computer and English could not come into their classes. A computer rooms with some laptops and internets was also put in place to help teachers and administration staff as well as students to conduct researches.

How has it been spreading?

Provided 254 students (primary and secondary) classes with computer and English knowledge
The inscription of.new students increased from 254 to 339 students.
In the 2-3 years my goal is to increase community awareness of the importance of computer and English skills in the DRC in the preparation of children to adapt to the new generation development.
The plan is also increase the capacity of computer and expand to the youth living around the school for them to become entreupreuniors using the acquired knowledge.
