Acer makes computing electronics but that’s not all the company does. While they have big plans for 2015, not all of them revolve around laptops, devices and smartphones. The company has launched an e-learning initiative in Zambia, which will see “…a number of desktops, monitors, projectors as well as additional accessories” being provided to certain schools in the area.
The Shalom School project, as it is known, will see the Shalom School – located in Kanyama in Lusaka – getting resources that will help promote the school’s aim of including disabled students in the area in education. The students are unable to attend more traditional schools and Acer’s assistance will improve how these student are able to learn.
According to the company, Zambia is “…a key focus area in education for Acer, and projects like Shalom School will be the first of many collaborations and initiatives in this country.” The Shalom School joins locations from Zimbabwe and South Africa that have already benefited from Acer’s help and, by the sound of it, there’s more to come.
