FirstRand contributes to computer literacy at UnamThe donation will not only benefit the students, but will also help lecturers at Unam to enhance their teaching. The FirstRand Namibia Foundation Trust has handed over 20 new computers valued at N$194 400 to the University of Namibia (Unam) for use by business math and basic micro and macro students for e-tutorials and tests.

FirstRand also committed to providing the university with a further 20 computers that will be donated at a later stage. This will bring their total contribution to N$400 000.

Professor Roman Grynberg, an economics professor at Unam, is excited about the prospects and new opportunities made possible by the donation.

“It will improve the quality of our education delivery and will help to bring teaching into the 21st century,” Grynberg said, adding that with enough computers they will be able to extend the course from business economics to business mathematics.

The head of public sector banking at FNB, Leslie Puriza, emphasised that one of the crucial concerns of FirstRand Namibia is to create hope and meaningful opportunities for young people.

Puriza said they hope these computers will bring about significant changes to teaching and learning.

“It is our hope that this donation will make a difference for students and citizens of this country, not only improving their access to information, communication and technology, but also enhancing their skills in computing, understanding and appreciation of information and communication technologies.”

Lukas Kamonika, an economics tutor at Unam, said the donation will aid students with completing their online tutorials.

“Interactive learning materials such as video helps and supports the learners and it improves the computer skills and literacy of learners.”

Information and communication technologies have opened up a wide variety of possibilities and explores the richness of resource-based learning and creativity.

“It enables learners to work with an assortment of resources, to learn through their experience of problem solving, as they piece together information strands to construct meaningful knowledge about a subject,” Puriza said.

A first-year honours student in business administration, Veronika Simon, believes the computers will help students to work faster and more effectively.

“This is an amazing donation. These computers are extremely fast and effective and will help with our efficiency and productivity.”
