Computer Aid is today shipping a further 450 computers and monitors to Stella Maris Polytechnic in Liberia bringing the total amount provided to almost 700. Stella Maris Polytechnic is the main distribution partner of Computer Aid in Liberia, making sure that computers are provided with appropriate technical support in place. The computers are distributed for use in education, health and development projects across Liberia.
Girls are using PCs in the class room for the first time with the equipment provided by Computer Aid. The school computer lab was built by Naomi Griggs (pictured) who is a graduate of the networking and computer maintenance course at Stella Maris Polytechnic.
Computer Aid is currently seeking funds to greatly increase the level of women graduating from computer hardware and networking courses at Stella Maris Polytechnic. This will in turn increase the representation of women in the sector and provide positive role models who, like Naomi, are successful women working in the male-dominated technology sector.
