May 2021 Programs Update

In 2020, you helped reconnect hundreds of students in remote Maasai communities to their education during COVID-school closures by funding the launch of an offline learning program using tablets and an app called Kolibri. The program became a lifeline that kept young Maasai students connected to school and learning.

Initially, we used Kolibri to load students’ tablets with lessons that closely matched their Kenyan school curriculum. As COVID-school closures drew on, we decided to shift to provide content students wouldn’t normally see in the classroom to better leverage this unique access to technology. Ultimately, this decision became COVID’s silver lining in the region we serve, providing access to engaging interactive digital content and tech skills which teachers and students in the remote Loita Hills region have rarely, if ever, previously had access to. The lessons included STEAM content and literacy focused material such as novels based in East Africa, stories written in their mother language of Kimaa, interactive math and science lessons, and tutorials on word processing and spreadsheets.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive reception from teachers and students to the tablet program, it’s now our goal to continue and expand this new digital learning opportunity in our partner schools in the Loita Hills. Currently we are discussing potential ways to integrate tablet learning into the classrooms for the new 2021 school year, which starts in July, with several pilot schools. Our goal is to provide students with content that will continue to enhance their learning, expand their technical skills and offer them affirming stories of female and Maasai role models.

Asante (thank you) from the bottom of our hearts, for the support you’ve given, and continue to give, to support this work!
