Schools eNetwork Project – We need your support!

As a business development manager, my goal is to keep current with one’s market,setup & manage strategic relationships & alliances with companies.Leveraging each other’s expertise, technologies or intellectual property to expand our capacities for identifying, researching, analyzing and bringing to market new business,services & products.

South Africa is one of the gateways of doing business in Africa, as an extension of my work role, I attempt to promote and contribute to ICT and technology development, which can be sustainable in Africa, by using a networking arena for the promotion of empowering technologies – Energizing Africa is the vision & Breaking the Digital Divide is the way…

The strengths of tapping into a vast network of resourceful people to help catalyse social change and growth in Africa, advocates a network of doing good business with good people as we do good in our world.

At present I am fortunate to be employed in a company, Comtel Communications,  which has

an altruistic mind-set & dedication to a project which energizes a strong passion in me. www.sent.org.za (Schools eNetwork Trust) uses the resources of our commercial company to provide schools in the Cape Province with free Wireless Internet. We are going through the process of being registered as a Trust with PBO status, in order to pool in stakeholders for further resources to provide e-Learning, VoIP PBX and further resources for our schools in the future. I am hoping that the 2 years I spent in Nigeria, on a similar project will help in furthering this project.

The pilot project started in September 2011 to provide free Internet access to over 80 schools in the Cape Peninsula. Driven by our director who is a retired school teacher, we have dedicated over R1 million in resources to this project & it is gaining momentum (incl. government educational departments and affiliates interest).

Stake holders at present are: Comtel & their staff, Scoop Distribution (Cape Town). We gratefully accept your assistance, advice & broadcasting the message out there to potential stake holders.SENT brochure is available in MyBox filesharing on this page -> http://za.linkedin.com/in/cyberafrica

Thanks for your interest, and lets hope we can all support and learn from each other, as collaboration is the key to a successful NGO project!
