In 2016, in partnership with the Rotary e-club One of South Africa, we contributed to a Global Grant (GG) project to try to increase the graduation rate of high school students in a community near Howick, Kwazulu-Natal (KZN). The project included providing mobile classroom libraries as well as purchasing computers and televisions to help train the teachers to access up to date lessons from the internet. The project was a huge success and resulted in the increase of graduation rate from 40 to 70%.
The Department of Education expressed interest in engaging more schools in this kind of initiative. We partnered with the E-Club One of South Africa in another GG project which involved 10 more high schools. The project was completed at the end of 2018.
