The NEPAD e-Schools Initiative is a multi-country, multi-stakeholder, continental project to teach ICT skills to young Africans in primary and secondary schools and improve the provision of education in schools through the use of ICT applications and the Internet. The first phase of the Initiative is a “Demonstration Project” (“Demo”) being implemented by NEPAD through the e-Africa Commission (eAC), in partnership with private sector organisations. Six schools in each of 16 countries were selected to participate. The Commonwealth of Learning, in partnership with infoDev, a multi-donor partnership housed at the World Bank, managed the monitoring and evaluation of the Demo project at the request of the eAC.
This public report is a synthesis of the lessons learned from the Demo Project to date, based on a series of internal reports provided to the e-Africa Commission during the course of the monitoring and evaluation process.
