Lenoir Foundation and Parvitech Enterprises Partner to bridge the digital divide in Zimbabwe.
With a mission to provide e-learning technology and improve education opportunities, we partnered with Parvitech Enterprises to install and provide internet access to (10) rural schools in Zimbabwe.
Our first successful install was at Munyoro Secondary School in Zimbabwe, a school located 50km from the city center in Munyoro Ward where over 800 students attend every day.
The school had computer structures but had challenges meeting the cost of termly internet for their learners and teachers increasing their inaccessibility to latest knowledge packs, and even new curriculum content.
With the expertise of Parvitech Entreprises and Utande Internet Services, we installed VSAT WiFi (a very small aperture terminal). Students and teachers can now access a wealth of digital resources, including e-books, online courses, and educational videos.
Parvitech Enterprises is a registered Zimbabwean company that was established in 2022 with the aim to supply and deliver the latest technologies to Africa and beyond. As a new technology business, Parvitech is driving the adoption of the latest technologies in schools by ensuring that every child, no matter where they are, has access to technology thereby enhancing and improving their lives.
“This partnership with LeNoir Foundation is an honor and an opportunity to show our commitment towards providing educational opportunities to those who need it the most and we believe technology can be a powerful tool in achieving this goal” said Munyaradzi Mumbure the CEO of Parvitech Entreprises.
As Lenoir Foundation, this project is intentional in identifying the most vulnerable schools in rural communities and most importantly offering support to the Ministry of Education’s agenda to encourage schools to fully adopt ICT as part of learning.
It is also a significant step towards our goals by providing the elements of digital access - connectivity, devices, skills, and support - to schools like the ones in Zimbabwe and other underprivileged areas. We believe that digital access is essential to improving educational outcomes. We are committed to ensuring that all students regardless of their background have equal access to the digital tools they need to succeed.
In his remarks, our founder James Mawaka said "We are very grateful to our donors, without whom this project would not have been possible. In our projections, we see over 800 students and 30 teachers benefiting from this project, which is expected to have a profound impact on the quality of education provided at each of these schools."
We look forward to providing digital access to more schools in Zimbabwe and other underserved areas. Our hope is that we inspire others to get involved in improving educational opportunities for students worldwide.
