He said, “Right now especially since Covid-19, everyone needs to be computer literate, the reason being is that everything we do nowadays we do it online even the zoom meetings or Microsoft meetings, so everyone needs to be computer literate. People are actually now even having a lot of interest to use these computers, whether it is young people or old people.”

As the world continues its transition from an industrial to a high digital economy, education, technology, access and training are becoming critical tools in search for social equity. Eyethu National Computer College is an established education and training institution in the Information Technology industry. The company will focus its core business activities on computer services and developmental training (ICT). The company has developed a well-structured and integrated educational programme in ICT for schools.
