Hi Somo and Metis Community!
Thank you to those who donated to support Learning and Livelihoods during COVID-19! Below is an update on what we achieved.
We reached 2,082 vulnerable families with the food products, hygiene supplies and masks and supported 44 small businesses around Nairobi and Kisumu. We bundled these supplies with Metis Home Learning Guides that have supported youth from vulnerable families to continue learning from home.
In partnership with Arifu, Metis has availed learning content that is being distributed via SMS and WhatsApp to support learners from vulnerable families. As well, Somo has developed easy-to-use WhatsApp and video-based content that tells local stories, as well as gamified quizzes to reinforce learning.
We are currently creating dial-in voice messages to make our learning content accessible to learners with a low level of literacy — story-based training content that gives them the tools to learn from home or run successful businesses.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating.
