The Nigerian office of the UK development agency, Department for International Development (DFID) has donated 50 used computers to CITAD. The donation was routed through the Computer Aid International, which is a computer refurbishing and distribution partner of CITAD, based in the UK. Miss. Anne Musyoki of the West African Desk of CAI signed the donation acceptance paper on behalf of her organization.
CITAD intends to refurbish the computers and donate them to secondary schools. This gesture is part of the contribution of the organizations to support IT education in schools. The computers were handed over to CITAD representative, Malam Isyaku Garba on 28th October in Abuja by the IT Administrator of DFID, Mr. Adesina Idris. The computers have since been brought to Kano and CITAD staff are working to refurbish them.
