The smiles and thank yous we get from the girls using our ICT Center and Digital library for free in Mathare Slums gets us going most of the time. From its inception we knew that this was a great idea, to provide a safe space for girls to come and learn skills and engage in books throughout the day and during their free time. We have so far created the platform for these girls also to be attached to mentors.


On the digital library end, we have girls in primary school who use the facility every evening to do their school homework, search the internet, and read books on the computers.


For the ICT Center, we admit girls who have just cleared their high school and do not have anywhere else to go due to financial constraints despite performing well. We take them in and teach them basic computer skills, then coding and website and graphics design.


Your support for this project is very much appreciated and each time we see the difference your donations are making we celebrate you.

 

Would you mind becoming  a permanent partner to these girls and commit a monhtly donation?

Girls from low-income areas like Mathare in Kenya find it hard to follow their passions in Stem related courses due to lack of funds to further their education and the societal pressure mounted on them by the community members to get married early. Most of them end up as single parents without a source of income, leading them to street life which is reckless and regrettable. This project which you are part of helps, young girls, to get access to courses in Graphics design, Website design, and coding. These courses are offered to girls who have just finished high school and have no chances of proceeding to the university or college and they are passionate about STEM.

After they are done with the course they are eligible to seek employment or start their own initiatives which bring them income to sustain themselves. The digital library is open to young girls in primary schools who due to community arrangements and stereotypes are not able to access reading materials due to time constraints and house chores. The digital library gives them a platform to read books online and with minimum disruptions and distractions.

As we begin the year we are looking forward to impacting over 100 girls through the courses and having over 300 young girls gain knowledge through the digital library platform this year. For us to keep this promise we need you to become a monthly donor and support us in catering for our monthly costs which are, rent, electricity, salaries for instructors, servicing computers, additional computers, WIFI and buying software.

No matter how far you are from Kenya, through your donations and support you can walk this journey together with the girls at the therapy center, holding their hands and making a difference in their lives all steps of the way. This project for ICT Center and Digital library for girls in Mathare Kenya is a great step towards creating an equal opportunity society. Kindly consider becoming a recurring donor for this amazing project for amazing girls directly funded by an amazing person like you.

Please find attached our annual budget for the year 2022 and feel free to reach out to me to directly support as an individual or as an organization.
