Cool tech stuff in Liberia

Photo by Glenn Edwards.

There is some cool stuff happening on the tech front in Liberia. I intend to visit these projects and check them out!

On Liberia: Take Back the Tech, young Liberian girls learn how to use computer and are trained in IT by Stella Maris Polytechnic--a post-secondary school that offers technical certificates and night courses.

Then, we learn that Computer Aid International is developing solar powered Internet cafes for use around Liberia--especially rural areas. I would love to see one in Robertsport! All we're waiting for to start a Robertsport Connecting Classrooms project is an Internet cafe! I'm getting in touch.
