Laptop Donation for Low-Income Learners

WM College has teamed up with the Good Things Foundation to address the digital and data disparities among economically disadvantaged learners who don’t have access to PCs or laptops at home. As part of this initiative, Lenovo Yoga 370 laptops were donated, and in July, twenty laptops were generously provided to select low-income learners.

These laptops come equipped with SIM card slots and have been furnished with a Vodafone SIM card, preloaded with 30GB of monthly data for six months.

This is a significant step towards providing a more equitable learning environment for our learners since access to adequate technological resources has been identified as a major obstacle to their educational progress.

What our learners said:

This is very helpful for me as my laptop has been broken and unable to use for a long time, I have not been able to join classes online from home and have had to commute a long way often to join classes. I am so happy and grateful.” – Tensu Sebhatu Bayru

I have never won anything before or had my own laptop to use, I have also used other peoples or borrowed them. It feels surreal that I will have my own laptop that I can keep myself and use for my work.” – Moses Dada

I am very grateful to have received the laptop and will be using it in the following year to carry on with my classes. This will be very beneficial for me as I do not have a laptop at home to complete my work correctly.” – Natalia
