Info about the Uganda Computer Lab

Bridging the gap between dependency and independence involves providing people with the appropriate tools. Giving people the skills and materials they need to be productive, proactive members of society is development at its best.

True Vine Team Ministries is a faith-based organization that serves the impoverished area of Eastern Uganda by providing low-cost medical care as well as educational opportunities. Currently there are 36 employees and 74 upper primary students who would benefit greatly from access to a functional computer lab.

As of now there are a few unreliable computers and some defunct computer accessories. It is the community’s vision to provide the employees and students with and up-to-date computer/technology lab where the employees can cultivate computer skills and acquire and acquire information that will improve their working capacity. Students and employees will be able to access more information including sensitive information about HIV/AIDS. In addition, the lab will also give the primary school students the skills they will need to be competitive in the Ugandan labor pool.

True Vine Team Ministries has the capacity to provide the building, some furniture, and pay the electricity and Internet bill so the lab may be suitable. With the funding from this proposal we hope to purchase at seven desktop computers, some educational l materials and furniture for the lab. With the use of an LCD projector that has already been purchased, workshops will be provided for the True Vine staff free of charge.

Thank you for your consideration in partnering with us to make this computer lab a reality. By empowering the health workers and educators at the grassroots level, many lives will be positively influence for years to come.
