EOL's Mission Statement

 

"Enabling the e-needy to access knowledge on the net"

Eligibility

 

For institutions to be considered eligible for free Internet access they have to:

bullet

Have at least one computer appropriately configured for Internet access.

bullet

Have an available connection (preferably wireless or cable Ethernet) to ANM.

bullet

Have a skilled member of staff to teach and manage the Internet access.

bullet

Allow ANM representatives to periodically evaluate the access site.
 

The focus is on:
bullet

Tanzanian Secondary Schools using the national curriculum and preparing students for the Tanzanian National Exams.

bullet

Teachers training colleges and institutions.

Our Philosophy

To provide free access to the Internet in order to catalyse an interest in, access to and familiarity with modern information technologies, as represented by the Internet, to the students who will be the future managers and decision makers in Tanzanian businesses and institutions.

Our Aim

 

To stimulate an environment of enthusiasm, co-operation and self-reliance in our institutions.
 

Our Method

 

Eligible institutions will be offered discounted Internet access for a period of six months. Within these six months these institutions will be encouraged to:

bullet

Incorporate information technology and the Internet into an educational syllabus.

bullet

Establish a formal timetable for information technology.

bullet

Invite a neighbouring institution, with no computer facilities, to share access to the Internet and Internet studies.

If, after six months, all these activities are established Internet access will be offered free of charge.

Our Hopes

 

That we, the members of ANM, can positively influence the awareness of the potential offered to Tanzania and Tanzanians of the many rich opportunities being enabled and inspired by the very rapid growth in information technology, especially those related to the Internet.
