The world today is driven by technology thats why our digital literacy project focuses on working with informal schools from disadvantaged communities in Thika to train learners and teachers on digital literacy. Through this project we facilitate learning through distributing laptops to informal schools and training teachers and our trainers so that they can facilitate digital education to learners in schools The learners/children also participate in sports and play based life skills trainings
Despite government efforts towards promoting digital learning, obstacles still remain in terms of digital education in Kenya, learners from informal settlement still have limited or no access to traditional libraries and textbooks, an indicator that access to digital learning is still a big challenge. Majority of the informal schools are not in a position to facilitate digital learning education and the parents are not able to support the learners.
Our digital learning centre will equip primary schools from informal settlements in Thika municipality with digital learning equipments and materials including laptops, tablets, learning tools and facilitate learning through training teachers and our volunteers on running digital labs in the schools and facilitating sports and play based life skills training to the learners.
The project will targets to equip 15 primary schools from informal settlements in Thika municipality with digital learning labs and equip more than 1500 learners with digital literacy skills and involve them in physical education through participation in sports and play based life skills sessions. The project will also ensure that the schools are very well equipped through training teachers for ease facilitation of digital learning within the schools.
