What is the DigiBus?

The DigiBus is a mobile and digital classroom, that seeks to improve education opportunities for children in the developing world.

Fitted with everything from laptops, screens and Wi-Fi, to anti-viral misting systems and CCTV cameras, the DigiBus makes a safe and inspiring place for our children to learn skills that are advantageous in today's economy.

Our last DigiBus in Kenya:



After the incredible success of our first DigiBus in Kenya, plans have already begun to build our second DigiBus for our children in South Africa. 

THIS TIME YOU CAN GET INVOLVED AND HELP US BUILD THE BUS!

We would like to offer you the opportunity to buy pieces of the bus, which will be delivered to children in the township of Kwa Zulu Natal at the time of the Lions Tour next July and August 2021.

As Atlas is led and supported by a host of Rugby Champions including Rugby World Cup winners, National team captains and former British and Irish Lions, the bus will be delivered to our children, accompanied by a host of rugby champions and legends at the time of the Lions Tour 2021.

Who will receive the DigiBus in South Africa?

Our children in the townships of Kwa Zulu Natal.

Within Kwa Zulu Natal, Atlas will work to bring education opportunity and development to as many as 10,000 children, in 11 schools across 2 townships, which at the moment suffer from a shortage of resources, especially computers for their schools. 

1. Mandadeni township:

  • 6 primary schools
  • 1 secondary school
  • 1 special education needs school

= 8195 children

2. Dundee township:

  • 3 rural primary schools

= 1460 children

Many of our children in South Africa still use blackboards in their classrooms with little or no IT facilities. This is preventing pupils gaining essential digital literacy skills, and therefore limiting future life opportunities. 

A new DigiBus will give the pupils in all 10 of these schools the education they deserve, helping them to have the best chance to thrive.

The DigiBus will last for 12 years until the next Lions Test series in South Africa. Over that time it will provide over 12,000 children with the digital skills needed to thrive in the modern world.

Atlas has already worked with Project Zulu to help fund the provision of a rugby pitch for Sithobelumthetho Primary School in the Madadeni Township in Kwazulu-Natal.
