Camara provides technology training and devices in Ireland and six African regions
Camara social enterprise is an Irish organization that provides technology training and devices in its country and six African countries: Ethiopia, Zambia, Kenya, Lesotho, Tanzania and Uganda. The non-profit enterprise that started in 2005 uses technology resources to promote better education in underprivileged communities.
Through a period of 11 years, the group evolved from distributing used computers, to offering training for students and professors with the purpose of generating better employment opportunities among their communities. For example, in Ireland, Camara supports teachers and youth workers through formal and informal programs to learn skills for becoming part of the labor force.
The organization provides training on a case-by-case basis. In Zambia, it works with 176 schools to develop digital literacy and prepare students for their computer studies. Funding is provided by the Department of Foreign Affairs of Ireland, which promotes overseas development programs.
