OLPCorps AUP Nigeria
We have partnered with the Chanchaga Local Government, who owns the rural primary school, Jatai Butu in Minna, Nigeria. With 142 students, 69 boys and 73 girls, Jatai Butu Primary School is recognized as a pillar of the local community but it is lacking basic learning materials such as books and computer access. This project with OLPC would therefore be a unique opportunity for children in the community to enhance their learning potential and have contact with the outside world. Jatai Butu Primary School has confirmed that we can begin our project during the academic trimester as well as during the summer vacation as part of their summer program. The school would also provide a location to store the laptops. We plan to provide internet connection for the school during the nine weeks and will work closely with the government in hopes of sustaining it. Laptops will be assigned to students once the summer program begins via the school to ensure proper use and security. Jatai Butu Primary School and the Local Government have shown great interest and enthusiasm as shown in the requested letter of support and will assign Hajiya Ramatu Haruna, a member of their staff, as our local guide.
