New Partnership for African Development's (Nepad) electronic school initiative is officially launched at Kyambogo College School near Kampala, Uganda. < ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
The objective of Nepad's e-Schools initiative is to equip all African schools with ICT tools, to ensure that African youth graduate with the skills necessary to fully participate in the information society and knowledge economy. The three schools that are already benefiting from the Nepad's Advanced Micro Devices are Kyambogo College School, St Andrew Kaggwa Senior Secondary School in Luwero and Bukuya Secondary School in Mityana. The initiative is a positive step towards empowering Ugandans with the benefits available from access to the digital world.
