The role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), especially internet in the education sector plays an important role, especially in the process of empowering technology into the educational activities. ICT is not just the bloom of the educational activities, but it is also the secondary option to improve the effective and meaningful educational process.
ICT has been developing very rapidly nowadays, therefore, the need to balance it, the whole educational system should be reformed and ICT should be integrated into educational activities.
The influence of ICT, especially internet cannot be ignored in our student’s lives. Being aware of the significant role of ICT in our lives, especially in the educational activities, the management of YAC has considered it worthy and wise enough to implement strategies to empower ICT in supporting the teaching and learning process in the classroom.

It is against this back drop that the YAC team will be implementing the “ICT project” under our Grassroots Development Project (GDP). The project will begin its implementation in some selected schools in some deprived communities of the western region of Ghana. The parents who have their wards in some of these selected schools are mostly peasant farmers and therefore are not capable in assisting the schools to meet the conventional trends in education. Trends in education globally indicate that children should be equipped with skills in Information Communication and Technology (ICT) in order to be at par with their peers in other institutions which have ICT equipment. Most children in these selected schools have challenges in the ICT subject and do not perform well in the final examination for certification due to lack of ICT equipment in the school. It will therefore be of much relevance and benefiting to the schools if they are supplied with ICT equipment to help the children to improve upon their ICT skills practically as well as their performance in their final examination.
