The ICT Program at Ready for Reading is aimed to create a venue for the Rwinkwavu community to get hands on practical ICT skills and to increase access to information technology education. Our comprehensive ICT training classes provide practical ICT skills comparable to the tools, theory, and knowledge offered at formal ICT institutions. Currently, the computer literacy course prepares learners for various employment opportunities that may require basic computer knowledge. As ICT is a major focus for national development and IDPRS II, the RCLLC aims to provide the means for the community to compete on a local, national, regional, and international level.
