Commitment to Action

Community Knowledge Centers in Zimbabwe and Madagascar

Commitment by

Appleseeds Academy

In 2014, Appleseeds committed to establish and operate one Technological-Vocational Educational Training Community Knowledge Center (CKC) in rural Madagascar and one in rural Zimbabwe to increase local community and economic development through access to information and communication technology (ICT). ICT has the power to contribute to the social and economic growth of individuals, communities, cultures, and nations; and skills development and training are an imperative, yet sometimes overlooked, component to the successful introduction of technology. Over three years, in partnership with NIP Global Ltd., Appleseeds Academy's CKCs will offer access to the tools of technology alongside trainings in management and community development, entry level and advanced Technological-Vocational Educational Training, and technology and education. Through access to the CKCs and their training programs, five thousand community members per year will be supported in building local capacity through technology, and increasing positive community and economic development.
