Since 2015, the SITA Air Transport Community Foundation has provided grant funding to the charity Promoting Equality in African Schools (PEAS) to build seven new computer labs at secondary schools in Uganda. The project includes the installation of solar power as well as brand new computers, networking equipment and furnishings.

In 2016 the construction of four additional computer labs got underway, bringing the total to 11 since the initiative began. These labs are all at secondary schools in rural areas in brand new buildings. The foundation has also funded computer training for teachers at each of the schools. Student confidence and skills in using computers are increasing, and many of the schools are offering after school computing opportunities as well.
