We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy as you read through this update. 2020 has been a very challenging year for all of us, but it has also highlighted how the ubuntu (the essential human virtue of compassion) spirit that has created a global community to support each other through tough times.
Given that Thanksgiving is in a few days, we wanted to give an update on where we are with our current Learning and Livelihoods campaign. And thank each of you for supporting our initiatives through your donations. The impact of your donations has, and continues to have, far reaching multiplier effects in the communities where we work.
Since our last update, we have successfully launched our digital training program, DigiSomo, and rolled it out across three cities in Kenya. Our digital training content covers topics such as customer service, personal vs. business finance and competitive analysis. Digisomo is available in 3 forms; DigiMessage, DigiVoice and DigiVideo. DigiVideo is free on our Youtube channel, please have a look and leave us a comment! Our trainees have been very receptive to these new modes of training, and we have received encouraging reviews from them. They are pleased with the lesson structure and delivery style and have used the training to improve their capacity as leaders within their businesses. At the moment, the content is in English; one of our next steps is creating the same content in Kiswahili.
