These are the projects
we have earmarked for now
- 2001-2004. More to come.
1. Computer Training Centers - The opening of Computer Training
Centers to provide computer training at a minimum cost or free of
charge throughout the length and breadth of Liberia. This is one of our biggest projects. We are targeting all
Liberians and non Liberians (schools, universities, the kids, the
disables, etc.). This is one of the sole purposes for
which ITA was established. We are also targeting training for the
blinds, including some disables. Though expensive, we hope this will
be possible as the first in the history of Liberia for a blind
person to acquire computer knowledge or skills.
We also intend to include a special training session for the kids in
order to give them an exposure to the computer world. We wish to
also equip some of our training with Internet Cafe for the kids.
This will give the children of Liberia an opportunity to browse the
2. Websites Development - Designing and hosting of
websites for Liberian based Non-Governmental Organizations. This
project is a collaborative one in conjunction with Interconnection
of Oregon, USA.
We intend to take Liberian NGOs to the Internet.
3. Information Technology Library - opening of an Information
Technology Resource Center that will cater to the computer research
needs of Liberians. This library is to be equipped with IT books and
some "off the shelf" technological equipment. We wish to
also have an Internet connection available at this library, if
4. KIDS HIV/AIDS Awareness - We have a software "KIDS
HIV & AIDS Training" from Dr. Dick Schoech,
which we are to use for HIV/AIDS awareness campaign for the kids in Liberia in
other to create social awareness of the deadly
HIV virus for the coming generation, the kids.
For these projects, we are seeking funding and equipment (new or
used). Some of
the equipment needed, but not limited to, include computers (laptops
and desktops - new/used IBM compatibles), computer accessories,
scanners, overhead projectors, software (programs), books, computer games for
kids, training videos, office equipment, Local Area Network (LAN)
equipment, printers, photocopiers, digital cameras, televisions,
VCRs, generators, uninterrupted power supplies (UPS), surge
protectors, air conditions, fans, vehicles, etc., etc. We are also in need of ORiNOCO
wireless equipment in other to be able to acquire an Internet
connection via one of our local ISPs which will enable us carry out
most of our projects; specifically the website project. We also need
your financial contribution as we need not mention this. Make a
