Technology is evolving rapidly around the world but Makindu, Kenya is far behind leaving already vulnerable and poverty stricken children further disadvantaged and computer challenged. This project will build a computer lab and offer training to 500+ children on computer skills and literacy. Those trained will be better equipped to find a job, survive and thrive in the challenging Kenyan workplace.
Rampant poverty in Makindu, Kenya precludes most individuals of access to computers. To survive and thrive in today's technology driven world, computer skills are essential. A computer lab will provide access and training to the 500+ girls and boys enrolled with Makindu Children's Program, and their guardian families.
With access to computer skills training, girls and boys will be better equipped to succeed in school, navigate employment opportunities, and land a good-paying job in the highly competitive Kenyan job market. Providing them with essential computer skills will give them an opportunity and advantage to rise out of poverty and sustain their own livelihood.
This computer lab and skills training will educate 500+ girls and boys in computer literacy allowing them to rise out of poverty, which will provide for their families' health and well-being.
