A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by the Government of Egypt recently with 12 companies in the Oracle Consortium to provide ICT hardware, software, digital content and teacher development to secondary schools.

As an initiative of the Nepad e-Schools demonstration project and Nepad e-Africa Commission, the agreement aims to establish six Nepad e-Schools in each participating country and monitor and evaluate their effectiveness in order to inform the broader rollout of the Nepad e-Schools initiative across Africa. The project will begin at three schools in March 2006. Initiative is to provide ICT equipment, skills and knowledge to primary and secondary school students that will enable them to function in a knowledge economy, to improve health education, to enable teachers to use ICT as tools to enhance teaching and learning, and to provide school managers with ICT skills so as to facilitate efficient management and administration in the schools.
