Each Hello Hub has 8 touchscreen tablets pre-loaded with high quality educational resources teaching children to read, write and do Maths. These tablets are also connected to the internet, so older learners can access online courses, learning materials sent by their teachers and video tutorials.

I am Hello World's Project Coordinator in Kampala, Uganda. Our new project putting 100 onetabs in homes in Kampala coincided with the lockdown for COVID-19. There has never been a more crucial time to be providing at home learning. Many of the children that we are working with were not in school regularly because of the price of school fees anyway, so this programme is leveling the playing field, offering the same high quality opportunity for education to all children who have the onetab.
