ECDL Foundation and Computer Aid International have signed a landmark agreement to bring effective use of computer hardware and software within the reach of some of the poorest communities around the world.

Computer Aid International sends refurbished computers from the UK to more than 100 developing countries for use in village schools, universities and underdeveloped towns. ECDL Foundation will enable students to gain the globally recognised ICDL qualification, providing them with the skills to enter the employment market or to create their own micro-business.

This collaboration agreement was signed at the ICDL Africa Forum in Nairobi, which was attended by 120 delegates from across Africa, keen to learn how to bring more computers and training in IT skills to their communities.
