Vicki Standish eEducation Centre

TEWFI has built an e-Education Centre. Officially opened on 22 January 2008, this is the first computer centre for this rural region. Located adjacent to the Uluru Children’s Home (UCH), this centre is accessible to the residents from surrounding villages, in addition to the children from UCH.

Engineers Without Borders Australia, have provided their technical support for the establishment.

Due to insufficient funds, the e-Education Centre currently features only nine PC work stations. However, we are urgently seeking more financial support to cater for our aim of expanding the network to make it into a multi-functional centre featuring a projector and a total of 35 computers. This function of the centre is to cater to the ongoing, long-term educational needs of the children at UCH.

TEWFI has employed local IT-literate staff to run and maintain this computer centre and help those visiting it.Generous supporters who have made this centre possible are

  • Alternative for India Development (AID India)
  • Linux Users Group, IIT Chennai
  • MSSRF (M. S. Swaminathan Research Foundation).

However, sponsors are still needed to ensure the e-Education Centre is adequately equipped as early as possible. As an example, on one day on a weekend, 50 local children, on average, will visit the centre. Due to the lack of computers, these children must spend most of their time waiting for their turn. A small plaque dedicating the computer to you or to your company will be displayed on site, and all donors will be provided with a tax-deductible receipt and thank you letter.
