NGO using technology to change lives of 72 underprivileged schools

Making Ghanaian Girls Great (MGCUBED) is Ghana’s and West Africa’s first interactive distance-learning project introduced by the Varkey Foundation.

MGCUBED uses computers, satellites and projectors in broadcasting live lessons to school children in about 72 deprived communities.

Through Varkey Foundation’s MGCUBED programme 72 schools benefit from distance learning technology in six districts in the Greater Accra and Volta regions.

Some female traders have gained employment by providing snacks to selected needy girls during the after school Wonder Women programme.

In all, over 5000 primary school boys and girls get to engage in intellectual conversation among themselves with expert instructions; the tendency of a broadened horizon alongside quality and accessible education cannot be overemphasized.

Joy News’ Maxwell Agbagba puts the spotlight on the cutting edge technology that is helping Ghana overcome it challenges with teacher absenteeism and theory based learning.
