Ghana: Call for free computers and ICT partners
Netplus is a cybercafé located in Accra centre, Ghana, on the ground floor of the 'Ghana Multimedia House'. The webcafé is one of the capital's most affordable cybercafes, and a meeting point for many students: they can surf the web, exchange in a relaxed atmosphere and get trained on network and software solutions.
Balancing Act met them in April 2011. Prince Ghanaba, the cybercafe's manager explained that he could expand and almost double up the cafe desks' capacity but they do not have enough money to purchase new computers. Netplus charges very affordably fees for internet browsing, at $0.60 per hour and $0.30 per 30mins. They get about 500 customers daily, and Netplus' yearly turn-over is about Ghana CDs 22K.Most of the revenues go into office rent, expensive internet connectivity from Vodafone, electricity, software licences and small salaries. Prince would greatly appreciate if donors could contact him to supply free working computers. Computers need to be less than 4 years old with clean hard drives. For now, Netplus has no IT classes running due to absence of more working computers, but when there were classes Netplus used to charge $32 per student per month or US$100 per term.
Netplus is also willing to partner with or represent foreign entities as well as local IT and Phone Companies. Netplus' mission is to provide meaningful enhancement to IT Technology, internet access and ICT training to the local population in Ghana and West Africa. Netplus is blessed with a very strategic location on one of the best business streets in Ghana (the High Street is next to High Court, Bank of Ghana, Barclays, Standard Chartered, GPO, Accra Metro Office, Nkrumah Mussolleum, Accra Maket Mall, Law School etc. ). It has a huge office space that is readily available for use for any IT business, sales point, resource center, IT out-sourcing center, call center or even as school training premises.
