Computers for Africa Schools Project
Digital Divide in Primary through Secondary Schools in Ghana, West
CASP aspires, as non-profit organization, to be actively involved
in making a significant contribution towards bridging the vast digital
divide between African's school-age children from primary through secondary
levels to that of their counterparts in the Western world.
CASP is dedicated to assisting poor and underserved schools in
Ghana to bridge the wide digital divide between Third World students and
those of the developed world through donating computer equipment,
training, volunteering, and collaborations.
Honesty, integrity, teamwork, consultation, is our
core values. Our principal strengths are the dedicated donors,
volunteers and school children whom we value highly and strive to
support in their personal and educational development.

volunteer committees, we ensure the best possible use of the
computers once installed in local schools.
