Digital Learning Centres in rural African communities

Ever since opening the doors to the R3.7 million Hazyview Digital Learning Centre I am often asked:

“What exactly is a Digital Learning Centre?”

We have built our rural, community-centric Digital Learning Centre model so that it is based on the principle of “digital-era” literacy education and career training.

A Digital Learning Centre offers advanced online, interactive, and self-guided digital learning opportunities for individuals (both learners and adults) wanting to invest in their own futures.

We are fanatical about three things:

  1. Delivering internet access and information technology to rural communities, enabling learners to access the same information and knowledge as learners in first-world settings
  2. Implementing well-structured, systematic digital skills and vocation development training programmes that are supported by recognised accreditation. The programmes are focused on empowering learners to dramatically improve their job-place marketability
  3. Training and placement of dedicated teachers, facilitators and mentors who are passionate about specific, achievable results and assisting learners with setting sustainable career paths
