AmaliTech has donated laptops to the Twin City Special School in Sekondi-Takoradi – a school for persons with intellectual disabilities—to support them in acquiring basic digital skills.
As our world becomes increasingly digital, access to technology and the ability to use it effectively are more critical than ever. We believe that everyone, regardless of ability or circumstance, deserves equal opportunities to succeed and thrive in our digital age.
AmaliTech paid an initial visit to the school last year to assess the possibility of extending our coding programs to the kids in the school. Our checks revealed that their computer lab needed to be functional, as all the desktops available were broken and non-functional.
AmaliTech took the initiative to replace all their broken desktops with laptops to enable the children to acquire basic ICT skills. Before our donation, the best the school could do was provide theoretical teaching, with demonstrations limited only to computer hardware.
Through this initiative, we hope to empower and support these children with intellectual disabilities in their personal and professional growth by providing them with the tools and resources needed to succeed in the digital world. We are proud to help bridge the digital divide and support inclusivity in our communities.
AmaliTech was represented by Lois Young (CSR Team Lead), Esther Nkrumah Amoah (Digital Marketing Analyst), and Christopher Angoe (National Service Person, CSR Department). The laptops were received by the head of the school, Crescentia Bilson-Sai, and the teachers present. The kids were excited about the donation and couldn’t wait to use the laptops.
We look forward to taking this initiative further by designing a fun coding program for the kids of Twin City Special School to encourage them to discover their passion and open them up to exploring the tech world.
