AFRICA IS A BIG CONTINENT,WITH DEVELOPED AND UNDEVELOPED AREAS.ICT

ADVANCEMENT IS MORE IN PARTS OF SOUTH AND GREATER NORTH. IN EAST

AND CENTRAL AFRICA, ICT IS JUST TAKING SHAPE,DUE TO POLITICAL INSTABILITY,

DISEASE AND WAR, MANY COUNTRIES HAVE LAGGED BEHIND IN ICT DEVELOPMENT.

SOUTH OF THE SAHARA,SOMARIA,SUDAN,UGANDA,CONGO,BURUNDI,RWANDA

HAVE ALL HAD THEIR SHARE OF POLITICAL INSTABILITY THUS POOR ICT DEVELOPMENT.

HOWEVER ,SOME COUNTRIES  HAVE PUT IN PLACE FAVORABLE  ICT POLICIES LEADING

TO QUICK AND STEADY IMPROVEMENT.

IN UGANDA, NGO'S  LIKE ITCT-AFRICA HAVE INITIATED PROGRAMMES IN TEACHER

COLLEGES,PRIMARY SCHOOLS AND UNIVERSITIES AIMED AT EQUIPING TEACHERS AND

PUPILS WITH NECESSARY ICT SKILLS. THEY ARE TRAINING TRAINERS,WHO WILL USE THE

ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE TO TRAIN OTHERS,THUS THE FUTURE OF AFRICA LOOKS BRIGHT.
