The reference for this painting was taken by Langa Zulu, at a 4iR event, hosted at the local primary school next to I Learn to Live – Ngifundela Ukuphila (NPO). AlgoAtWork, along with the Lab Mobile, spent a morning blowing the minds of the primary school children. From whizzing drones to virtual reality goggles – the children experienced many ‘first times’ that day. The image captured by Langa is the moment a group of boys watches a drone begin its ascent (and a young girl trying to find her way in).
We work in an environment where the majority of children have no access to computers at home, limited access to smart phones, and very limited data to watch online educational resources that will help them improve their studies. Children in rural areas are already significantly disadvantaged when it comes to access to tertiary studies and employment. I Learn to Live is trying to ensure that these children are not left behind.
Seventy (70) % of proceeds will go to I Learn to Live’s technology programme.
