SUNSTEP receives a President's Award nomination

SUNSTEP, when sponsored by MTN, was honoured in 1999 for being one of three nominees for Education Africa's Presidential and Premier Education Award for not only encouraging learners to pursue careers in technology, but also having a strong drive to train teachers in order to broaden their skills base. 

The message from the President's office was clear:

"You are doing excellent work, keep on with the programme." - Mr James Urdang, Executive Director: Education Africa, November 1999.
