We started our initiative to develop schools since 2011, and since then we were able to renovate several computer labs in nearly 20 schools in Assiut, Minya, Sohag and Qena. We have provided those schools with nearly 400 laptops, 20 printers and about 10 projectors. We also worked on training more than 100 teachers on how to use these devices efficiently. We look forward to take this initiative on a wider scale and expand it even more to provide outstanding technological possibilities for schools in Upper Egypt. "
