Via Afrika Digital Education Centres

The right tools are a non-negotiable in today's technology-driven world. This is why Via Afrika has decided to embark on a roll-out of the Digital Education Centres. The centres will not only provide wonderful books -- filled with adventure, foreign lands, make believe worlds, the gift of knowledge in languages, geography, art, science and maths -- but will also contain technology filled with electronic textbooks. The electronic textbooks will ensure that learners know how to interact with technology and also how to demonstrate their knowledge using technological tools.
