Independent NGO, Oando Foundation, has unveiled a new ICT Centre at the Archbishop Taylor Primary School in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.

In a news release on the organization’s website, the foundation said the ICT center at the Archbishop Taylor Primary School is its pilot center and is equipped with desktop computers, laptop, projector, printer, TV and DVD player.

The center is powered by solar energy and is expected to enhance the learning capabilities of pupils while facilitating their exposure to computer education and other technology as they connect with the rest of the world via the use of the Internet.

The foundation also announced that it has partnered with the U.S. State Department’s Global Partnership Initiative, LIONS@FRICA, CoderDojo and the Hello World Foundation to launch a new initiative called AfriCoderDojo to teach 21st century computer coding skills to students between 7 to 17 years old.

The new ICT Centre is one of six centres Oando Foundation plans to establish. The rest will be in six other Nigerian state; Cross River, Katsina, Bayelsa, Ebonyi, Kaduna, and Ogun states.
