Since 2008, we have fostered use of ICTs in education in Uganda, Kenya and DR Congo. Linuxola has facilitated computer labs and training in the universities of Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Kyambogo, Kenyatta and Kinshasa. With the opening of our coordination and training centre (ITCT Africa) in Kampala, linuxola has trained teachers and students in computer engineering every year.
