Fundamental to the program of installing a Computer Centre in the village of Astam was the training of members from the village to maintain the Centre. A Technical Team was formed that would maintain the computer hardware, internet connection and backup power supply. They were trained to troubleshoot and either fix problems that arose or to contact external technical people for help. These photos show the training that was provided to the Technical Team by the various professionals that were involved in installing equipment in the Centre in 2011.
The Logged On Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that uses computers and the internet to improve the state of education in less fortunate communities and to connect them to a world of ideas, services, entrepreneurial activities, and knowledge exchange.
