The world’s leading ICT and computer software producer, Microsoft is planning to kick start a massive ICT project in uganda’s schools with the project to kick off this year.
The director, Afrosoft IT solution, Katamba Ronald who will be the link person for the whole project in Uganda says, many ugandans have been and are still learning IT lessons with no practical’s offered which makes them graduates with no necessary skills needed in the job market.
But with the new programme, Katamba says more students at primary, secondary and university level will be passed out with the necessary practical skills in ICT adding that they will be also able to compose Apps as a ways of show casing their ICT abilities.
He further mentions that they will be starting with a pilot project in the selected five districts across the country targeting more than 1000 students and pupils and later will roll the project in the whole country.
Katamba revealed this in an interview on his return from the Microsoft conference in the US where he had gone to present a paper on ICT innovations in Uganda and our potential.
