    On behalf of SisTec, I write to first appreciate your institution’s interest and partnership support to the furtherance of ICT Education work with young people particular young woman and girls in Sierra Leone.

    SisTec Sierra Leone looking at training 200 young woman and girls including Schools pupils computer hardware and software for free. I have been doing very well in schools and colleges please see links of our activities: https://moyambacomputerschool.webs.com/activities.htm

    SisTec GirlGOICT has clear social and ecological benefits, but it is not a long-term solution to equipping our society and economy to deal with social security. However, I am also looking at training young people starting October, 2020 by bringing the youth together to provide a central forum to develop an improved understanding and assessment of the ICT Educational impacts in the South and in the North of Sierra Leone; allow discussion and development of informed decisions on practical adaptation strategies in different areas of ICT Education in Sierra Leone, as well as the development of appropriate mechanism for continuous information exchange on online impacts and adaptation amongst the districts in my country Sierra Leone.

    We are asking you to please support us with funds to train teachers, students and young people.

    Thanks so much for your concernand hope to hear from you again.
