African Schools on Line

Computer refurbishment courses for secondary School curriculum

Sponsor a School

"African Schools on Line" a proven comprehensive ICT program for overseas Primary & Secondary schools. Born in Africa and applicable for worldwide usage

ASOL is the complete ICT package, enabling overseas schools not just with computer access to the millions of children lacking access to the most basic of resources, but offering a comprehensive package including teacher training, curriculum development and business planning to ensure development and sustainability.

West versus the developing World!

A global disparity exists between Western and Developing World. The West representing 20% World population have access to health care, education, drinking water, electricity, etc . The 80% cannot say the same ... Some divide!

  • Surely children eager to learn and teachers dedicated to providing the best for their students deserve more, including encouragement and support. Hence the development of "African Schools on Line" in 1995 and "Streamline" in 2013 and more recently Vocational curriculum courses developed by CfC for use in UK & Overseas secondary Schools or Colleges ( Click these links for "Worldwide Advice & Support" & "Courses")

People Stories

Hailsham, Albania, Uganda

People we assist

Whilst Computers remain a key part of the charities activities. Our core activity is working with people either directly through the organisations and projects we support or within the charity itself.

From workers in Romania, School children in Zimbabwe, Migrants in Calais, Offenders in Prison or the caller today making a general enquiry. Our slogan aptly describes the organisations ethos " Passionate about People" with our endeavours to offer security, acceptance and dignity to those we encounter.

Sadly capacity limits what can ideally be offered, however whatever the circumstances we try to give every one a chance.

  • Some successes and some failures

Bob is one such fellow. He was referred to us by one of the agencies and now attends of his own accord for around 12 months... His schooling was undertaken at a school for children with special needs, there he was bullied to the extent of having bricks thrown at him. As with all new volunteers, we ask that they write a short life history to help us get to know them better.

Bob has mental health issues, which have not made it easy to get a job. Still living at home, but then so is his older brother with parents now well into their 70's.

Bob writes about his volunteering at CfC. Saying " I like the fact I can get up in the morning and go to work like everyone else in this world. I am allowed to function as an individual and have found a new confidence and the ability to work with others. I used to be shy and was bullied, I wouldn't say boo to anyone" Nowdays its the opposite and a real job to stop him jabbering. Sadly for people like Bob, the outside world is not so caring and a lot more demanding.

  • Limited funding precludes us from providing paid employment. In addtion Mentors are needed to enable support and coaching opportunities to help these deserving folk reach potential.
