What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Only 3.6% of households owns at least one computer in Kenya (Census 2009).The rural folks are mostly affected. Majority of the youth migrate to the urban areas to access computer and ICT trainings, which is costly for the poor youths.Some end up in doing odd jobs including prostitution. This project will affect 50 needy youths who reside in remote Sinyereri village on the slopes of the cherangany Hills

This project provides computer & ICT skills for needy youth. The youths are trained in photography, videography and computer packages. The youths then provide computer and ICT services to the schools and institutions in the community, making a profit

Potential Long Term Impact
