Sustainable ICT Educational program
Making a difference
- African Schools on Line - an educational program. Not just
for Africa but Worldwide
- Computer refurbishment courses available for secondary
- Sponsor a School and help shape the future
"African Schools on Line (ASOL)" is a proven
comprehensive Computer - ICT program developed by Computers for
Charities. Aiding Overseas Primary & Secondary schools to
further Educate & Skill future generations. (African Schools on
Line (ASOL) - Born in Africa, applicable for worldwide usage)
ASOL is not just a process of shipping computers, but much more.
A complete package, enabling under resourced overseas schools to
provide first time access for millions of children. Often lacking
even the most basic resources.
This comprehensive package includes; Teacher training,
Curriculum development and business planning to ensure development
and sustainability of the program.
African Schools and CfC are unfunded operations. CfC
operates totally through the support of unpaid Volunteers and
Trustees providing time and skills without charge
West versus the developing World!
A global disparity exists between Western and Developing World.
The West representing 20% World population have access to health
care, education, drinking water, electricity, etc . The 80% cannot
say the same ... Some divide!
- Surely children eager to learn and teachers dedicated to
providing the best for their students deserve more, including
encouragement and support. Hence the development of "African
Schools on Line" in 1995 and "Streamline" in 2013 and more recently

Passionate about People". Our aim being to offer security,
acceptance and dignity to all those we encounter.
Sadly capacity limits what can ideally be offered, however

- Some successes and some failures
Bob - Sussex
Bob is one such fellow. He was referred originally to us by a
local agency and attends of his own choosing, being around 12
months... His schooling was undertaken at a school for children
with special needs, there he was bullied to the extent of bricks
thrown at him. As with all new volunteers, we ask that they write a
short life history to help us get to know them better.
Bob has mental health issues, which have not made it easy to get
a job. Still living at home, but then so is his older brother with
parents now well into their 70's.
Bob writes about his volunteering at CfC. Saying " I like
the fact I can get up in the morning and go to work like everyone
else in this world. I am allowed to function as an individual and
have found a new confidence and the ability to work with others. I
used to be shy and was bullied, I wouldn't say boo to
Nowdays its the opposite and a real job to stop him jabbering.
Sadly for people like Bob, the outside world is not so caring and a
lot more demanding.
