an educational project to help rural school youth access to appropriate didactic equipment fot the teaching of science and technology related curricula to equal opportunity and their chances of better integration in a global world

Project Summary (max. 2000 characters): 

private high school initiative avoid the insertion of science and technology related humanities in nyangezi due to lack of appropriate equipment for teaching and qualified teachers in science and technology. The support center for the dissemination and teaching of sciences and technology at high school level in rural Walungu and Kabare, NPO, targets 11 identified schools teaching humanities in rural areas in Munya and Mumosho, making it available to schools teaching materials for collective use by above targeted private secondary schools. It aims to create a computer lab, equipping science labs, (physical, biological and natural sciences), creating a reference library, retraining of teachers, support to local communities in promotion of agriculture and environmental protection. ADEST already has its buildings, furniture and 25 computers. It lacks laboratory equipment for science and technology, a reference library and the initiation of self-financing activities.

Background Information

Barriers and Solutions (max. 1000 characters): 
major barriers include the income revenu of populations in rural area and their inability to pay for the consts, the feat that the teaching of curricul such as mathematics, science and technology inspirer in rural youth, and the aversion of qualified urban trained teachers for living into rural harsh conditions. solutions undertaken were to establish a dialogue with schools, to finance ourselves the services provided by the center, to build the infrastructure and to provide shelter, equiped, for consultants coming from Bukavu. Students and schools are attracted to use the facility because it is well equipped, has a stable elecrical system ad running water. the project includes also an outreach programm toward the community in agriculture improvment and tree planting for the protection of the environment. However, with no help and funding, it will be diffuclt to go forward.
Future plans and wish list (max. 750 characters): 
the next steps is to complete the basic equipments of the project in terms acquiring school laboratories equipments, improving the quality of the library and initiating self sustaining activities for self funding. I need funding between 100 000 USD to 450 000 USD
