Providing Computer Education

Child Aid Lanka is working with the Informatics Institute of Technology (IIT) College in Jaffna to give a grounding in computing and IT to children from families that cannot afford to pay for it.

IIT is a private higher education institute specialising in information technology, based in Colombo with branches in Jaffna and Kandy.

The year-long course, for children aged 11 to 18, will provide a grounding in IT that will prepare them for access to further study and a secure career.

The project is directed to children whose families cannot afford to pay for their education.   Children from government run free schools in the Jaffna area will nominate students for this course.

Child Aid Lanka has forged this partnership with IIT which has links with the University of Westminster in London.
