High-school students at a secondary school in Malawi have spoken about the positive impact computers donated by Oxford Saïd, have had on their lives.
Computer equipment and supplies were shipped earlier this year as part of the School's collaboration with The Turing Trust, the charity founded by British mathematician Alan Turing's family to support digital education in sub-Saharan Africa. More than 1,250 items of IT equipment including laptops, desktops, monitors, printers, cables, and iPhones have been donated by Oxford Saïd since 2019.
The initiative reinforces the School's commitment to sustainability, reducing carbon footprint and CO2 emissions while creating educational opportunities. Students at the Likangala Secondary School and St. Anthony's School in the Malawian Zomba region, where only three per cent of students have access to computers, reflected on receiving the supplies. They shared how the computers delivered in the last few months is helping to support their future ambitions.
