We are firm believers and advocates for the power and role that women have in the world. We work with grassroots women initiatives which engage and are formed by women who live and work in the communities we serve. These centres ensure that women can access technology and information to improve their lives, their families and society. Through our Sera Program, we provide an environment that is free, friendly, comfortable and conducive for learning and sharing of ideas.
Our beneficiaries range in age from 3-year-olds to 65-year-olds. We work with learning institutions which may include but are not limited to Primary Schools, Secondary Schools and Vocational Training Institutions. We utilise curriculum-based e-learning platforms, e-books and educative games for our children program.
Through digital spaces and skills training, we aim to instil and encourage confidence in students to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in education and as a career. From learning how to power on a computer, to using Zoom for training and meetings, we expose students to new opportunities to advance their knowledge. We open their minds to careers in technology by building the foundation for further training, in areas such as coding and web development. Encouraging students to believe that STEM is an option open for them is important for the advancement of society in general.
ZOO Mobile is an innovative moveable digital space. It is custom-built on a vehicle; equipped with laptops, a photocopy printer and wi-fi connectivity. The mobile centre primarily serves children enrolled in remote schools. Our trainers and volunteers develop and administer digital literacy workshops.
We use our digital platforms to provide practical skills-based workshops. We offer specific training on topics that are relevant to the various needs of the different population groups, such as financial management, agriculture, and topics that complement the national primary and secondary school curricula.
