Challenge

Education is the road out of poverty. Today, education needs to include access to technology and the internet. Kenyan schools are working to build the bridges their students need and we need to help them! By connecting schools in Kenya to the internet, students are able to connect to the world and all it has to offer. Information, collaboration, cross cultural learning, world events- these are only a drop in the bucket.

Solution

Technology Partnership (TP) has supported the schools of Meru, Kenya for over 10 years by supplying computers and computer training for over 200 teachers in 48 schools serving 38,000 Kenyans in grades K-12. NOW, we're connecting Kenyan kids to kids in the US via the internet to solve global problems jointly and along the way learn about each other and their cultures. Through this project, TP will help fund internet service and classroom connections to help jump start these opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

Computer technology and internet connectivity are necessity for economic development. Technical skills and understanding of the internet are imperative for global citizens. With internet access and technological literacy, our partners can reach opportunities all over the world and realize their potential for themselves and their communities.
