Our global footprint extends further as we now have teachers trained by the Mwabu Academy team using the iSchool tablets in Liberia. We have been working with CMRC. Inc., a registered corporation in USA and a registered NGO in Liberia. CMRC with the African Bible College has purchased forty Mwabu educational tablets supporting 180 children and eight teachers at Bethel Foundation, a community school in Sanniquelle, Liberia.
The organisation sent two of their coordinators to Zambia for teacher training with the Mwabu Academy trainers. The school coordinators were trained to be able to go and train their colleagues, with continuous guidance and support from the Mwabu Academy trainers via Skype, phone and WhatsApp communications. We are delighted that the school coordinators have felt so supported, and were able to train their peers effectively in the use of the iSchool tablets and lessons.
Although it is less than a year since the implementation of the program, the school coordinators, as well as their fellow teachers and pupils are delighted with the Mwabu tablets. They have recommended scaling up into other community schools in Sanniquelle, Liberia.
CMRC is happy with the feedback received from Bethel Foundation and is now looking to raise US$250,000 in order to implement Mwabu tablets in other community schools in Liberia.
