As part of its goal to empower and equip 100,000 students and youth corp members in 2013, emerging technology industry brand, VEDA, introduces its Student and Corpers’ Laptop, Internet and Content Scheme (SLIC), an initiative geared towards students in schools and graduates during their National Youth Service with the aim of empowering them with the 2 most important tools of the 21st century – a computer and internet access.

VEDA has partnered with GTBank Plc, MTN Nigeria, Standard Alliance Insurance, Microsoft, Jobberman and Intel Nigeria, to provide students and youth corp members with a VEDA laptop, Windows 8 OS, MTN 3G Internt Modem with 1 Month internet access, 1 year warranty, 1 year accidental damage insurance and apps including Jobberman’s premium services as well as a laptop bag financed by GTBank Plc.

Youth corp members should provide their Bio Data, Call Up ID Number and open a GTBank account to apply and receive the product bundle while students only need a working sponsor or guarantor to co-apply.

For the Pilot scheme kicking off this month, prospective youth corpers can apply in Lagos and Abuja NYSC Orientation camps and pick up the products on the last day of the orientation camp. Pilot Universities for students include;

  • Bayero University, Kano
  • University of Jos
  • Modibbo Adama University of Science and Technology, Yola
  • Gombe State University, Gombe
  • Usmanu Dan Fodiyo University, Sokoto

SLIC will be available to all Universities and all NYSC camps nationwide in 2013.

      Nice initiative. We live in the information age and Nigerians shouldn’t be left behind. The Internet can be a wonderful learning tool if used well

      That’s fantastic however now that corp members are only posted to schools how can they pay for this with 19800 being their allowance? Just thinking out loud.
