Camara Education

Camara is a dynamic charity that uses technology to improve education in Africa. Started four years ago, Camara is now at the forefront of delivering Technology-enhanced Learning (TeL) to some of the poorest people in the world. It does this by installing computer labs in schools and colleges in Sub-Saharan Africa and by training the teachers how to use these computers as educational tools.

About us

Camara is an International organisation dedicated to using technology to improve education and livelihood skills in disadvantaged communities around the world. With better education we expect these communities to break the cycle of poverty they find themselves in.

Founded seven years ago in Dublin, Ireland the organisation has built a proven model of ‘education delivery’ that is both sustainable and highly scalable. Some 500,000 children in poor communities have been made digitally literate by Camara over this period.

Why are we exciting?

Camara has:

  • provided eLearning Centres to over 2,000 schools in Africa, Ireland and the Caribbean
  • installed nearly 40,000 computers
  • trained over 11,000 teachers how to use the technology for learning purposes.
We currently operate in seven Education Hubs in Africa (EthiopiaKenyaRwandaZambia,UgandaLesothoTanzania), one in Jamaica and one in Ireland. All Hubs operate as social enterprises and are financially sustainable after one year.

Camara has won a number of awards: The Vodafone World of Difference Award; The Arthur Guinness Award; The David Manley Award; The Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Award; The Lord Mayor’s Award (Dublin); and The Global Development Network ‘Most Innovative Development Project’ Award.
