Electronic communications: more resilient multimedia rooms in schools

The visit of Louis-Marc Sakala, at the head of a composite delegation, took place with the aim of inspecting the facilities a year later in order to assess their condition, any difficulties and provide the necessary solutions. If in the two schools visited, in this case the technical school of Oyo and Marcel-Champagnat of Makoua, these multimedia rooms are operational and meet the expectations of pupils and teachers, they nevertheless reveal some slight technical problems to be overcome quickly. “We have noticed security problems for certain places, where schools are obliged to take from the operating budget to pay for a security guard. In other places, such as Makoua, we notice that there are energy problems that penalize the operation of the room in a continuous way although we have put wavy battery security systems”noted Louis-Marc Sakala. “This look allows us to amend, correct and put in place funding lines for next year in order to repair the errors that we have observed. “, has, moreover, underlined the secretary of Fasuce.

About twenty multimedia rooms have already been installed in several schools and universities, thanks to a donation from Fasuce. The objective, specified Louis-Marc Sakala, is to “demystifying the computer tool” and to lead students to break the digital taboo.

The working stay in the northern part of the country of the Director General of ARPCE, Secretary of the Fund, continued in Ouesso, in the department of Sangha, where he visited, on November 23, the installations of the multimedia room of the newly fitted agricultural school.

The construction of this operational room, which saw students test a few agricultural programs via the internet, is the responsibility of Fasuce to support not only these future agricultural engineers towards broader access to this increasingly automated ecosystem, but also to prepare new leaders capable of better promoting this specific area of ​​agriculture. “The policy of the government and, above all, that of the Head of State to tie the Congo to the digital economy is to equip our schools with multimedia rooms which can replace both physical libraries and break down the barriers of IT, helping our students to better train themselves “, explained Louis-Marc Sakala, at the end of the ceremony.

The Fasuce, of which the ARPCE is the management body, has served since 2020 as a powerful catalyst for development and contributes to the implementation of national projects aimed at better digital inclusion in an environment of information and communication technologies. evolving. The program will currently connect just over 105 localities, considered yesterday as “white areas”, and promote access for rural and poor communities to basic electronic communications services (voice and data) and to services requiring broadband.

During this year, out of the thirty planned localities, Fasuce succeeded in connecting twenty-five that already benefit from the benefits of the Internet and its services. By now allowing more than 36,000 Congolese to benefit from electronic communication services, Fasuce has encouraged the development of new services, the creation of local content, promoting digital inclusion.
