Global Centre for Information Technology Empowerment and Education (i-Tee)
The importance of Technology in expanding the scope of knowledge cannot be over-emphasized. It is globally accepted that the best way to advance education is through the use of technology. However, majority of Africans have lost the opportunity of educational integration one way or the other due to limited knowledge or access to the required technology. The Global Center for Information Technology Empowerment and Education (i-TEE) (formerly known as Initiative for Technology Empowerment and Education) originated with the aim of bridging the technology barrier to education and strongly believes in the practicality of the future generation of Africa. The vision was borne out of the passion to improve knowledge through the use of technology in Africa.
At i-TEE, we believe we can realize the goal of Africa in finding her place in global technological advancements in greatest measure, by investing in the development of her greatest resource: the people, especially the women, youths children, which strongly determines her future.View some of our activities
