The Prime Minister of Cape Verde inaugurates the second ICT classroom donated by Izertis to the African country
Our company has donated a technology classroom to the African country of Cape Verde, which will be used for the development of activities related to new technologies for students in the Achada Fazenda region. This new classroom has been inaugurated by the Prime Minister of Cape Verde, Ulisses Correia e Silva, the ambassador of Spain in the country, Dolores Ríos, and the CEO of our firm in Portugal, Ivon Ramalho, among other prominent guests.
Encourage the training and interest of young people in the area in new technologies
The main objective of this CSR project is to encourage the training and interest of young people in the area in new technologies, in turn developing a solid learning base around Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). In total, more than 80 children between the ages of 9 and 12 will be able to benefit from this initiative.
In particular, the donation includes the total adaptation of the classroom, among which the renovation works of the space, painting, the installation of furniture and electrical outlets, as well as the donation of cutting-edge computer equipment, projector and air conditioned have stood out. Also, it has helped to provide the secretariat with all the necessary means to digitize its processes. All of this has been acquired through local suppliers.
“For us, this is a project that we already feel within all of us who are part of Izertis. In addition, from our company we understand that contributions of this scope need continuity over time, and that is why it has already been three consecutive years in which we have been collaborating for the development of ICT education in this wonderful country, and at that we want to continue adding our contribution to its growth”, has said Ivon Ramalho, CEO of our firm in Portugal, after the presentation of the room.
This classroom would in turn join the one previously built in the same country by our company in 2019 in the Santa Cruz Council, on the island of Santiago. Since then, more than 800 students between the fifth and seventh grades of primary school (ages 10 to 14) have made use of its facilities each year to promote and learn new technologies.
