SchoolNet Namibia is a non-profit organization dedicated to extending information, education and communication technology to all Namibian schools and educational institutions, using the Internet. LearnLink's Computer-Assisted Teacher Training (CATT) Project is providing education technology support to programs for professional development. Currently, School-Net volunteers have configured and installed four local area networks in Teacher Resource Centers (TRCs): Ongwadiva, Okahandja, Rundu and Katima.
