Prem-U: university in Mali, West Africa
Initial course programs would address technology, non-profit management, and teacher training.
By creating technology maintenance and non-profit management programs, non-profit and government agencies could send their staff to be further trained. Some of the critical needs of personnel and technology can be addressed and serious issues such as green technologies and recycling computer parts would be introduced into the Malian operations.
Teacher training programs in conjunction with the Ministry of Education goals can supplement the minimal teacher education programs and encourage and enhance their educational methods.
Training methods will utilize internet, e-texts, and local telecentres and cyber cafes. Costs will be kept at a minimum.
Further programs would be added as funding and evaluations indicate.
