British Airways (BA) is ready to invest 100, 000 pounds to assist four rural schools of Kenya to establish Information Technology centres.
British Airways (BA) has already invested 50,000 pounds into the construction and training in one of the skills centres at St Bakhita's schools. The airline will partner with Cisco and Microsoft systems that would help to facilitate services even further. While Cisco will provide Internet connectivity, Microsoft would install learning software and facilities training for teachers. The project is expected to benefit over 4 000 pupils. BA has already imported 200 computers to be distributed to the various centres. BA has been running similar community development programs in Kenya for a record 10 years. The airline also supports projects in Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Tanzania and Nigeria.
