How Drupal is Impacting Schools in Moldova Regions

Tech4children is a program dedicated to engage high-school student in rural community to build their school website or blog using Drupal platform. Tech4children first pilot edition started in 2014 for 10weeks in Orhei at the Biblioteca Publica Raionala Orhei. The Drupal training was led by IP Group company in Chisinau Moldova. The outcome of the 10 week pilot program led to the creation of 6 high schools in Orhei building their school blog - www.tech4childrenorhei.org.md. Tech4children is currently running the second pilot edition in Leova. We started in May 2, 2015. The Drupal training is led by Drupal web service providing company WIBE. Tech4children is in partnership with IREX/Novateca, a global library program funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in partnership with USAID to equip libraries with modern technologies in order to facilitate ICT education program.

The Future

Our vision is to cover all the territorial district in Moldova, engaging children and high-school student to acquire digital skills by creating their school or community website.

We have also planned to develop a Drupal book for basic and advance which will stand as support for participant to self-learn how to develop  website with drupal.

What We Need
