MTN SA Foundation had donated a multimedia center in 2016 to Christel House in Cape Town and is now being donated again to BEST College.
After adding value to the education of our Grade R – 12 learners for six years, the time has come to upgrade our multimedia centre facility. So, we paid our facility forward to BEST College in Observatory and helped them install the computers, upskilled their IT manager and introduced the children to their new facility.
A local IT-certification company then stepped forward and will now be offering structured ICT training at the centre on an ongoing basis.Adri Marais, Chief Executive Officer, Christel House
We are grateful to Christel House for their donation to BEST College; it truly underlines the holistic approach we’re taking to use technology and a connected life to empower society, and their donation will undoubtedly provide new opportunities and a chance at a better life for learners in this competitive 21st century.
For us, the key to a sustainable future for South Africa means broadening access to information and communications technology, while promoting the adoption of digital and ICT skills of children in classrooms across the country.Kusile Mtunzi-Hairwadzi, General Manager, MTN SA Foundation
