Non-profit firms benefit from computer discounts

12 February 2014, 18:53

Nairobi - Computers for Schools Kenya (CFSK) has initiated a discount programme to reduce the cost of technology for non-profit organizations in the country.

The offering is dubbed the Tech-soup Kenya.

While it seeks to boost non-profit groups, the organisation has played a prominent role in the education sector.

CFSK, which has been in operation for the past ten years, has sourced more than 120,000 personal computers that have been, deployed in over 8,500 Public Secondary and Primary Schools, Technical Training Institutes, Teacher Training Colleges, Medical Training Centres and several universities.

CFSK’s core business being to facilitate educational development, has carried out training of over 20,000 heads of schools and Education Officers, teachers and tutors, members of Schools’ Board of Governors and Parents/Teachers Associations and is seeking an advisory role in the provision of laptops to schools in the country.

“We have already set up the right ICT infrastructure in schools and the laptop programme is coming in good time,” said Tom Musili, founder of CFSK.

The Jubilee government had promised to provide laptops for every school child once elected to office last year.

Although the project was not implemented in January, a tender for the supply of laptops has been given to an Indian company.

Olive Communications won the Sh24.6 billion tender to supply 1.2 million laptops to be provided to Class One entrants.
