Gayaza High School wins Microsoft ICT award

Gayaza High School in Uganda was one of three schools around the world that walked away with funding from Microsoft during the company's new Pitch Competition, which was presented at the close of the 2014 Microsoft in Education Global Forum last week.
The school received $15,000 for its innovative use of technology in helping local entrepreneurs.


Microsoft launched the Pitch Competition to seek out and fund the most innovative ideas from school leaders worldwide.

Gayaza High School has been using its technology centre to provide local entrepreneurs access to computer programs and the internet to market their businesses, build websites, monitor profits and manage their accounts.
Gayaza's Competition pitch looked to further document these entrepreneurs, by creating an online portal of best practices with links to videos showing the production processes of small-scale local enterprises in Uganda.
"Youth today are being encouraged to be job creators and not job seekers. Our project will provide lifelong learning and we anticipate that it will inspire students to begin their own enterprises, or manage ICT marketing activities within any given organisation," says Ronald Ndungu, head teacher of the school.
Gayaza's Pitch video was one of six finalists, and one of three from around the globe that secured funding.
