Empowering the next generation of Young People through Technology

“The next generation of young people must be empowered through technology, and we must make it happen. By harnessing the power of the latest technological innovations, we can create a world where every young person can access the tool and have the needed resources to succeed,” says Austin Lablah, Principal  of Hermann Gmeiner International School in Monrovia.

At the Hermann Gmeiner International School in Monrovia, young people are discovering the true power of technology to unlock their potential and shape their futures. The school, once reliant on only traditional teaching methods, is now using computers and innovation as integral part of learning. In the multi-purpose computer lab, students explore digital literacy, web design, and other problem-solving applications with enthusiasm and confidence.

One such student is Sam*, a tech enthusiast, who has a noticeable passion for website design and graphics. Thanks to the SOS Children’s Villages in Liberia-supported computer programs, young people like Sam are connecting with peers around the world, broadening their perspectives and fostering a global community of learners.

Technology has a significant impact on academic pursuits. Apart from that, online courses and digital training programs have become instrumental in equipping young people with the necessary digital skills to compete in today’s ever-changing world of technology and the job market.  “Information and Communications Technology for Development (ICT4D) goes beyond just learning how to use computers; it also involves learning how to navigate the digital landscape of the 21st century with confidence and ease,” Says Sam** student of Hermann Gmeiner International School in Monrovia .

Education is being revolutionized by technology and SOS Hermann Gmeiner International School is at the forefront of enhancing the potential of young people through various learning and enrichment programs. These programs provide young people with essential skills and tools that enable them to confidently shape their future and seize opportunities that may come their way. With the right attitude and abilities, students can now fully embrace the immense potential of technology in enhancing their education.

Investing in technology is investing in the future. By empowering young people through technology, we can equip them with what they need to succeed in a rapidly evolving world. Let’s work together to create a brighter future for the next generation.
