Coope ICT Centre has recently acquired donated land from a long-time resident, Mzee Edward Okello and his family. The Coope ICT site has been one of BOSCO-Uganda’s longest operating and most successful sites, with a number of dedicated volunteers and community training staff working hard everyday to bring the benefits of the Internet to their local village residents.
Up to this point, the Coope ICT site has been housed in a cramped, rented room off of the side of the main road to provide ICT services and training.
This room only accommodates 6-8 people at a time. With the donation of new land by Mr. Okello, the Coope site will be able to establish a permanent ICT centre that can accommodate larger groups of people with more functional facilities, enabling presentations, community workshops, and other events around ICT to take place on a regular basis.
Funds are still needed to begin building a new structure on the donated land. BOSCO-Uganda and its community ICT users are grateful for Mr. Okello’s generous donation in service to his local community!
