Educational transformation in southern Africa

From 2019 Petits Músics we have been working together with Labdoo, a humanitarian social network that provides developing regions with the possibility of better education. It works through the collection of several computers to send them in solidarity to different regions of the world.

From this collaboration, the educational transformation project in Southern Africa was launched, in which we opted for a computer education that would open up horizons and have a broader view from knowledge. Petits Músics del Món seeks to ensure that Malawi children and young people have free access to education, thereby expanding their students’ knowledge and improving themselves in this area.

Malawi has a low level of computer literacy, and many centers do not have computers for children and young people to use. That is why Petits Músics works with Music Crossroads and Labdoo to provide young Malawi with the tools they need to expand their teaching resources.

These disused laptops are sent to Malawi Music Crossroads-Malawi School, where computer classes are given to music school children and from nearby elementary schools. Each device has a Linux system with educational software (Ebuntu) for children from preschool through high school. In 2019 we successfully shipped 16 laptops to Music Crossroads and by 2020 we will be sending more.
