Nyanga branch continues to benefit from IY’s relationship with our partners and sponsors. In July this year, we shared on our Facebook group, that our computer lab was being installed . Today, barely 3months later, we sit beaming with pride and amazement at what the computer lab has enabled us to achieve in such a short space of time.  Our Grade 8s, 9s and 10s have each had 22 sessions of Khan Academy, a Maths tutoring program aimed at helping learners hone their Math skills and in our learners’ case, also get regular and ongoing exposure to computers. Our Grade 11s have had 7sessions of Operation Fikelela, our computer literacy program, facilitated by our dedicated volunteers.  All our Grade 8s, 9s and 10s each have their own email addresses and are excited to discover a world wider than their own, through the internet.

 A very special thank you to all our partners who have made this possible; Andrew Einhorn, the US Embassy and thePotter Foundation.  Your support is greatly appreciated here at Nyanga.
