‘Connect A School Programme’ bridges digital divide in Dedza CDSSs

Malawi Communication Regulatory Authority (MACRA) has, through its ‘Connect A School Programme’ reached out to three schools in Dedza District, where it will construct computer labs.

Raphael Kachingwe, Headteacher at Kalambo CDSS, praised the project as a “game-changer” in promoting technology use in CDSSs and noted that the school, established two years ago, has over 100 students, mostly girls, who will be motivated through the initiative.

Gabriel Ali, MACRA’s Information Technology Manager, explained that access to Information, Communication, and Technology (ICT) has been a significant challenge in rural CDSSs, hence the project.

Dedza South legislator, Ishmael Onani, acknowledged the challenges facing CDSSs and vowed to address them, urging students to protect school infrastructure from vandalism.
