Computer literacy

It is one of Hilltop‘s objectives to bring computer skills into rural areas and townships that have otherwise no access to modern technology. We supply schools with refurbished computers and if required send a trainer there to train both teachers and school children for a certain time until teachers can overtake or create a position for the trainer to contine to have this position of employement either working for the school or employed by Hilltop.

Also included is a English programme and typing tutor and wikipedia. We encourage schools to use e-learning software, it assists teachers, implemeting e-learning into their curriculum.
