Solar internet schools programme to benefit Tanzania
Samsung Electronics is reported to be in talks with Tanzanian authorities to roll out its solar powered internet school concept in the country.
Samsung’s Solar-powered Internet Schools have been piloted in rural areas of SA, Kenya and Nigeria. They use solar power to run advanced internet learning centres in converted shipping containers equipped with PCs, smart boards and multimedia tools.
Nandan Nair, Samsung Electronics Business Leader for East and Central Africa, says Samsung Electronics has initiated talks with the Tanzanian government on ways to roll out the project in Tanzania too.
