Vicki Standish e-Education Centre

The East West Overseas Aid Foundation is collaborating with Engineers Without Borders Australia to improve the quality of life for rural children in India through education and the implementation of sustainable engineering projects.

We have built an e-Education Centre that will provide IT education to the children at Uluru Children’s Home, as well as those from the wider community.  Located at the Children’s Home, the Centre is the first for the region and will feature 35 PC work stations. The facility caters to the ongoing, long-term educational needs of the children based at The Uluru Children’s Home and will be accessible to children and adults from surrounding villages.

The e-Education Centre will vastly improve the educational and employment opportunities of the young people in this remote part of rural India. It will also allow the local community to access vital medical, educational and other information relating to their daily lives, such as weather forecasts, national and state government support, etc. The project is the first of its kind in the region and will go a long way in empowering the local people.

The Vicki Standish e-Education Centre was officially opened on January 22nd 2008. Due to lack of funds for construction, the initial plan – which included an administration wing – has been cut back so that basic IT education facilities for the community can be completed as soon as possible.
