Project : Computer Room

Digital literacy forms an important part of the education of our secondary school students. This project aims to extend the existing computer room and allows students to work individually on laptops.

Current Situation:

The computer room is too small to train a single group, and several students share a single desktop computer for their training activities. Although it is possible to work, the overall learning experience should be improved by providing a better infrastructure.

Future plans:

The existing computer room will be extended and equipped with twenty laptops. This will allow students to benefit from advanced capacity-building activities related to the digital learning experience.

Amount needed for this project: 14'000.00 CHF

Already Funded Project: New Library

This project aims to provide the students a place to study and read outside the regular school hours. Some of the students live on campus and appreciate to practice their English whilst studying about the arts, humanities and natural sciences, but also read novels and comic books in their free time. Starting in 2022 and with generous support of Paul Reinhart Foundation the existing library will be extended, refurnished and updated with books to meet the demands of an increasing numbers of students across different ages.
