The new solution, a one-on-one learning programme, promotes interactive student-to-teacher relationship and provides students with immediate, reliable data access.

"Sudan's future rests on the potential of its youth, and how much of that potential is unlocked," said Kyoung IL Min, managing director of Samsung Sudan.

"With this in mind, we are very pleased to be able to contribute to changing the face of teaching and learning in Sudan by bringing our solutions to schools like the Ahfad University for Women."

The lab features 30 workstations where Samsung notebooks and Galaxy 3 tablets, file server and an interactive eboard is readily available.

Samsung Electronics Africa’s Common Shared Value (CSV) strategy is centred around education and aims to improve lives with its long-term business plans in Africa, it said.

"While technology alone cannot ensure quality education, it is critical that students in Sudan are immersed in a technology-rich environment from as early on as possible," said Kea’ Modimoeng, public affairs manager at Samsung Electronics Africa.
