Government announces changes to laptop project

22 June 2015, 16:30 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has restructured the controversial laptop project after a lack of funding hit the heavily publicised project.

Information Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i said Monday that the project has been restructured after the one child per laptop project was found to not be feasible.

The new approach to the project is dubbed the Digital Literacy Programme.

Matiang’i said in Nairobi that an inter-ministerial secretariat had been formed to roll out the project and have been handed eighteen months to implement it fully.

" In the next 18 months, all the resources, human and financial, will be redirected to make sure the Digital Literacy Project is successful," the CS said.

" The digital literacy programme governance structure is in place, the three tiers framework consists of an oversight committee comprising of cabinet secretaries, an inter-ministerial committee and a technical implementation team," Matiang'i added.

According to the project, there will be four key phases to be considered.

Development of digital content, an undertaking the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development, power supply to schools as well as adequate training of teachers on the usage of ICT as well as availability of accessing the digital content through multiple platforms will be the key areas focussed on to ensure it is successful.

The project will cost the taxpayer KES 17 billion as allocated during the 2015-16 budget.
