A proven comprehensive Computer - ICT program.
Developed by Computers for Charities and aiding Overseas Primary
& Secondary schools to introduce and integrate computer access
& Skills for future generations. (Born in Africa, applicable
for worldwide usage)
ASOL is not just the process of shipping computers, It's much
more. The full package, enabling under resourced overseas schools
to provide first time access for millions of children, many lacking
the most basic of resources.
Our package includes; Teacher training, Curriculum development
and business planning and seeks to ensure continuing development
and sustainability of the program.
The World Versus the Developing World!
We currently live in a world containing 195 countries and
holding a total population of over 7 billion Men, Women &
Children. Difficult to visualise! Of this number, 45% of all wealth
is controlled by 1% of the population.
Add the East, West divide. With 24 Western Countries containing
20% of world population and able to access clean drinking water,
health care, full education, etc. Whilst for the remaining 80%
population the story remains markedly variable. In the UK alone 50%
of wealth is controlled by 10% of the population, leaving 50% of
the population to struggle at the bottom of the socio - economic
- Surely children eager to learn and teachers dedicated to
providing the best for their students deserve better! Hence the
development of "African Schools on Line" in 1995, "Streamline" in
2013 and more recently Vocational curriculum courses developed by
CfC for use in UK & Overseas secondary Schools & Colleges (

People we encounter
Computers remain a key part of the CfC's activities.
However, our core activity is working with people either directly
through the organisations and projects we support or within the
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". Our aim being to offer security,
acceptance and dignity to all 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 - Sussex
Bob is one such fellow. He was referred originally to us by a
local agency and attends of his own choosing, being around 12
months... His schooling was undertaken at a school for children
with special needs, there he was bullied to the extent of 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
Nowadays 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.
