Abstract
This report details the findings of an applied project to design and implement a sustainable Information and Communications Technology center in the rural community of Berekuso. The project was intended to address the challenges of providing the community with access to quality education. The project design was divided into three key areas which include the establishment of the physical hardware infrastructure, the hosting of a digital library equipped with relevant educational content, and ICT literacy and training services. The implementation of the project consisted of two phases, the first of which is the initial setup phase and has been fully implemented. The second phase involves long-term support and is yet to be implemented. This report is concerned primarily with the first phase, although some recommendations have been made concerning the implementation of the second phase and beyond.
