What we do..


Overnight schools closed in Ghana during the coronavirus pandemic with little other support offered. Rural African children rely on school for access to basic needs such as water, sanitation and sometimes food. The school closures also put children at increased risk of exploitation, child labour, or early marriage. Without the protective environment of school, children were more vulnerable to abuse or exploitation.

The Problem

When the schools reopened in January 2021 many children had fallen far behind in terms of literacy and numeracy. Many experience learning loss, which means that they may have forgotten much of what they have learned in school before the pandemic. This put them at a huge disadvantage when they eventually return to school. Children in rural areas had limited or no access to remote learning options, which further exacerbated learning loss and hindered their educational progress, as they struggled to catch up.

The style of education in remote, rural village school classrooms is traditional blackboards and rote learning. Moving to digital tablets will not only be a huge hook to entice more children to take extra lessons after school but it will also be a more productive and effective way to improve a student’s literacy and numeracy.

How can Tech2Teach help?

There are many children, just coping, but still in school struggling in education. The pandemic closed schools and disrupted education for many rural African children, but it cannot extinguish their potential. These children are fighters, resilient and determined to learn, thrive and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

We know children the world over are hungry for techie gadgets and love playing games on digital devices. African school children are no different but never get the opportunity. We want to use free literacy and numeracy educational games on low-cost Amazon computer tablets to unleash their true potential and overcome the challenges of all the schooling they missed.

The Impact

Educating children: increases economic growth, promotes gender equality, improves health, and enhances social development. Leading to better employment prospects and increased income. Educated individuals are far more likely to make informed decisions for their families.

“The Tablets have made a huge difference to our pupils, increased their proficiency in both maths and English . They now look forward to their lessons. If they are happy and engaged they are learning”

Ebenezer Adjetey Sowah, Aboabo Primary School Headmaster

Volunteer Overseas

Volunteering will probably be one of the most worthwhile things that you ever do.

We take around 50 volunteers a year out to Africa. Doctors, Nurses, Teachers, Bricklayers, Mechanics, and students, all pay their own costs and raise money for the projects they work on.

We have opportunities to work on a wide range of projects that save lives and create transformational change.

Without volunteers, many projects would not exist. Discover our volunteer opportunities.
