For the SolarSPELL implementation in Rwanda, the Rwanda Education Board (REB) selected five pilot schools, four of which were rural schools that had Peace Corps volunteers. Trainings were conducted with teachers, administrators, and the Peace Corps volunteers at each school. SolarSPELL continued to work with each school throughout the pilot phase of implementing the digital library and identifying content areas for improvement.
Furthermore, SolarSPELL worked with Bridge2Rwanda scholars to curate resources for the East Africa digital library. Through an internship, ten scholars also provided on-the-ground support to the five schools, curated additional regional content, and helped foster relationships with various Rwandan organizations. Rwanda Peace Corps volunteers work in Education and English Literacy.
SolarSPELL (Solar Powered Educational Learning Library) is a student-centered initiative hosted at Arizona State University.
