What do the Turing Trust do?
The Turing Trust aims to provide IT equipment and educational tools to those people who need it most. Working extensively in Africa, the Trust’s first 10 years of work has seen over 55,000 students across Africa gaining access to computers.
And why is this important? In 2015, only 3% of students in Malawi had access to a computer at school, and studies suggest that IT skills really help improve a student’s prospects. The Turing Trust’s partner schools have seen a 20% increase in the number of students attending University since they started teaching IT, and a recent report suggests that IT skills equate to a 39% increase in income. In short, access to computers provides these disadvantaged children with the gift of opportunity.
