Thare Machi Education, A Charity Providing A Unique Way to Teach Health Education

08/11/2013

As we are keen to provide multiple ways to educate people in Africa, this year Computers 4 Africa has partnered with Thare Machi Education.  TME have developed a range of interactive DVDs that provide people in developing countries with a new learning experience.  We believe it is important that people in Africa are aware of their own health and ways to stay healthy so we decided to opt for TME’s healthcare DVDs.  These will soon be included as part of our shipments.

“For some time we have wanted to increase our software offering that goes with each computer and healthcare is high on our list of priorities. We have identified a great charity - TME that produce interactive healthcare training DVDs, which are available in multiple languages. We have an agreement in principle to supply a range of their DVDs to every beneficiary that we supply with computers. We are always looking for other like-minded organisations to partner with in a mutually beneficial way and this partnership with TME is very exciting” David West, COO.

This initiative provides a new means of education for our beneficiaries and meets TME’s goal of “pioneering new, robust, simple teaching technologies at village level”.  It also hits our joint goal of education as a means of producing new opportunities for people, which we see as the key to the future of Africa.

We are hopeful that this addition to our computer shipments will enrich the end users experience, allowing them to study autonomously and gain knowledge that potentially could improve one of people’s basic needs - health.

Rachel Butt said: “Like Computers 4 Africa we see that technology, which is considered outdated by many in the UK, has the potential to change lives. When a mutual supporter put our two organisations in touch, we were really excited at how our different visions complimented each other, and saw straight away that a partnership would increase the effectiveness of both. We are delighted to partner with Computers 4 Africa, making TME’s DVDs easily available in Kenya, Tanzania, Cameroon and elsewhere and enhancing the fantastic work that they do by providing educational and interactive material to be used on the computers they send.”
