INTRODUCTION

Maxim Nyansa believes that IT, and specifically the use of multi-media and educational software, can make a change in the personal development of young Africans via the schools. Children love school, at least at first; that is where they make friends, play and begin to explore the world. Education is now reaching most African children. But when it comes to introducing students to digital literacy and a deep understanding of what they are learning, there is still room for improvement in most schools.

Supporting high school students with computers and software:

Maxim Nyansa is supporting students in high schools across Africa by providing them and of course their teachers with much-needed IT infrastructure and educational software. To support high school students in their learning process, there are many excellent open source resources available on-line both for teachers and students {digital library link integrated}. These materials can be of great help in improving the quality of education. For most schools, going on-line to work with this material is not an option. Maxim Nyansa therefore looks for the right infrastructural solution for every situation, at school and at home.

IMPACT

Our organization started in 2016 with a pilot project to develop its integrated approach. We have been able to scale up our school projects through the generous donations and involvement of local stakeholders.

Maxim Nyansa delivers tailor-made integrated solutions for the innovation of education in African schools:

OUR METHOD

  • A quick scan of the needs of schools:

    In order to provide a school with the best solution for their needs, our IT and education experts first offer to perform a quick scan of the current situation regarding the available infrastructure of the school, the availability of electricity and Internet services and the level of IT literacy of teachers and students. Based on this, Maxim Nyansa develops a tailor made solution for that particular school, taking into account its financial situation in the planning of investments and training programs.

  • Fees and financial support:

    We are an NGO registered under Ghanaian law as a non for profit organization. We price our projects in high Schools moderately to cover our costs for local Maxim Nyansa staff. Our Maxim Nyansa Foundation is partnering with its sister organization in the Netherlands “Climbing the right tree” and is therefore capable of supporting some school projects financially where necessary. Together with our Dutch partners, we try to find financial sponsorship for your school when necessary; first this will start in your own local community, and secondly from international sponsors. In particular, we regularly receive donations of slightly used computers and smartboards, that we offer for public or rural schools lacking the resources for such an investment.

  • Our staff knows education as well as IT:

    We work with engineers who have been trained in computer science as well as education, with a practical experience as school teachers too. In addition, all of them have followed a specialized training at our own Maxim Nyansa training center.

WHAT DO WE OFFER

Maxim Nyansa believes that 21st century learning transformation is not a quick fix solution, but it deserves an integrated approach. In the past, many good projects have been carried out to introduce IT in schools in West-Africa. Many of them lacked impact because they were addressing a single issue.

Our integrated approach consists of these elements

Training:

Training of teachers in basic IT skills. Training in multimedia teaching practices. Training education innovation for 21st century skills including innovative approaches like EDUSCRUM

Hardware, networking, installation and maintenance:

Set up of IT desktop laboratory, Installation of other hardware like smartboards, projectors, ipads and laptops in class, IT architecture and internet connectivity evt combined with on campus wifi and local servers

Software:

Individual Learning Management Software (online or offline alternative), Open source digital educational content matched to the West-African curriculum, School administration software

Specialized Consultancy and change management

Our consultants can advise you on the way to go in the coming years and the steps you can take.

WANT TO JOIN THE COMPUTER4SCHOOLS CAMPAIGN?

The COMPUTER4SCHOOLS campaign is a project in close collaboration with schools, traditional councils, businesses and other sponsors all over Ghana. We believe that all students in Ghana can obtain 21st century skills. Information technology is fundamentally changing the world and the job market and will be a key factor for the development in the ECOWAS region, and the country of Ghana.

Digital literacy and the ability to apply ICT in problem solving are fundamental success factors for this change. We therefore want all children in Ghana to have the opportunity to take part in these changes, by having access to internet and to computers.
