Vodacom Group’s Chief External and Regulatory Affairs Officer, Stephen Chege, recently visited Dodoma Secondary School in Tanzania to witness the impact of the Vodacom Tanzania Foundation’s initiatives. The school is a beneficiary of the Instant Schools platform, also known as E-Fahamu, which aims to enhance education through digital resources.
E-Fahamu provides teachers with materials to improve their lesson delivery while granting students access to a wealth of free educational content. This platform enables students to engage in self-learning and deepen their understanding of classroom subjects.
During the visit, the school’s administrator expressed gratitude for Vodacom’s support and the provision of the E-Fahamu platform and computer lab. As a result, the school has achieved remarkable success in national ICT competitions, consistently ranking among the top three performing schools in the city. The availability of educational resources has positively influenced students’ interest and performance in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, and ICT subjects. Additionally, there has been an increase in the number of O-Level students opting for ICT streams.
The encouraging results align with Vodacom’s mission to connect communities for a better future. Stephen Chege pledged further support to the school, including the provision of additional computers and tree planting initiatives. By empowering educational institutions with digital resources, Vodacom aims to create a conducive learning environment and foster a brighter future for students in Tanzania.
