Namibia today launched a programme to provide laptops and internet access to needy students at tertiary institutions.
Minister of Higher Education, Training and Innovation, Dr Itah Kandji-Murangi announced on Monday that students will receive devices and 10 Gigabyte data at heavily subsidised prices.
The programme, to make e-learning more accessible to students, will commence in conjunction with internet service providers and information technology firms, in June.
Universities are expected to open on 3 August after it has been closed when Government announced the state of emergency to curb the spread of COVID-19, in mid-March.
