S’gela is a township slang word for School. Since the focus of this project is getting previously disadvantaged schools online, we felt the name of the project should be familiar to the majority of the intended users for the website. All schools or organization need a Website in today’s technology age. This is a useful platform to have to archive many things for the institute.
This project is headed by young South African citizens who saw the need to give back to the schools that made them to be part of South Africa’s work force. With so many school Pupils leaving schools year after year it is only right that a project like this is in place to make sure the system that is providing these resources is looked after and well maintained.
