ST Foundation and the NGO MLFM (Movimento per la Lotta Contro la Fame nel Mondo), together with METID –Polytechnic of Milan, partnered in 2006 to launch a project to fight the digital divide in Uganda. Through this initiative, different goals were met: a Wi-fi network was created at BCKSS (Bishop Cipriano Kihangire Secondary School) in Luzira, to allow students and teachers to communicate and share knowledge inside the school through the net; internet offices and laboratory classrooms were linked; the internet connection was distributed to the School Hospital to allow better administration and telemedicine applications; teachers were trained, so that they could profit from such benefits during didactical activities.
