African Schools Online - ICT Educational Program -

Developing Sustainable ICT models

African Schools on Line (ASOL)

Enabling first time ICT Access & Opportunities benefiting Children, Schools & communities across the world!

ASOL is a tested ICT (Information and Communications Technology) educational program (Information and Communications Technology) providing first time IT access for Secondary education in developing countries. (Born in Africa, applications worldwide)

Facts: Figures suggest 800 million+ children lack the most basic resources including clean drinking water access, taken much for granted by the 20% Western world's population, let alone the increasing global dependence on IT.

The process is more, than simply shipping computers. It requires a package to ensure true sustainability.


Providing sustainable ICT access for Overseas Secondary Schools in remote and poorest regions Worldwide.

The Package provides:

Prepared computer systems

Teacher training

Curriculum development

Business planning

etc .


Born in Africa. Zimbabwe to be precise ASOL has grown worldwide. A random enquiry from Stephen Ibbs of Data Developments in Wolverhampton.

"My father used to be a teacher in Zimbabwe could you supply computers for the three schools he taught"... From this beginning "African schools on line" was born and developed into an innovative educational program..., much more than sending our old computers to faraway places.

Whilst capacity limits what ideally can be offered, 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 by a local agency and now attends of his own choosing. His schooling was undertaken at a school for children with special needs, he was bullied to the extent of having bricks thrown at him by his peers. 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 with his older brother and 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"

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.

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