In the School we have faced a lot of Challenges like Covid-19 and its related effects including lockdown and school closure, then we had Teachers strike and even other challenges are coming including high rate of school dropouts..
Covid 19 Pandemic affected everyone and among those were teachers, students, parents, and everyone else. Students dropped out of school, teachers missed a lot of money, traders made a lot of losses, and also teaching time was tampered with. After the reporting of the students back to school, students had lost track because they had diverted into some other things. All these happen to prepare us for the future bigger problems.
Our E-learning Solution
The website is to maintain continued provision of knowledge to the public. Though sites like these exist, this one provides education to everyone regardless of where you are, where you study from, or what you do.
We have learned from the past experience and as a Bubangizi ICT club, we did not hesitate to design something that would help us overcome other challenges like these in the future. All this was summarized in one place both to solve the existing problems and prepare for the future. It came into our mind to Design such a platform as a way promoting Quality Education which is SDG number 4.
