One girl’s dream of holding a computer for the first time in her life has been fulfilled in the Bono Regional town of Berekum. At 15 years, Sharifatu Azumi was yet to use a computer despite learning ICT for years.

There was pomp at her school, the Gyamdede Adom M/A in Berekum, when Ghana’s leading wireless infrastructure giants, ATC Ghana cut ribbons for the opening of a digital communities center for Sherifa’s school and other young people in the Berekum Community.

“Our school is a public school. Public schools don’t have many things and so we don’t have computers. We hear the name but we have never used it before,” she says.
