The DUNGRI - Computer Center Project is one of the projects designed by the Computer
department of the NAVTI FOUNDATION NGO, CAMEROON. It's
aimed at improving computer literacy. We will do this by creating
Community Computer Centres in each town with above 5000
people in Bui Division. We will also provide schools with Com-
puter Educational Centres. In addition, we aim to set up
Hardware and Microsoft-Linux, Cisco training schools in major
areas of Cameroon and shall proceed to Internet distribution.
NAVTI Foundation (HongKong and Cameroon) has gone into
collaboration with Caritas, a big Catholic NGO in HongKong.
They have accepted, as partner, the task of collecting good com-
puters which they donate to us. We have to sponsor transport and
pay handling charges per computer. Our target is 2000
computers a year.
Why we created this project
We created the Computer and Information Technology project
because:The Ministry of Secondary Education in Cameroon
report ranks the North-West province as having a high illiteracy
rate. This is because of the high poverty level. This hinders
parents from sending their children to school. Furthermore, those
who can afford to go most often often end their schooling at a
primary educational level.
Low levels of Computer literacy
Computer literacy level stands at less then 15 % of the literate
population of this region.
Most computers found in this region are refurbished Pentium 2
models with many still refurbished 486 models.
What we offer schools in Cameroon
▀ Refurbished late model computers for educational use only.
▀ Trained staff and former students who will teach in the various centres.
▀ Technical staff in our organisation to maintain the equipment.
Schools shall provide their own computer teachers and housing facilities. Students
shall pay a token fee for the maintenance cost.
