With help from the volunteer engineers from Orion GMS, the Malezi Hub is now operational!
We are very happy to share the development of our new Digital Hub at Malezi School and Community Centre located at Kitui Ndogo, Nairobi. This shows what we can achieve thanks to your support! Special thanks to our funders Orion GMS, The Souter Charitable Trust and Calastone, as well as all the people who contributed to make this possible.
With this program, we aim to provide more than 2784 hours of access to technology per year and impact more than 590 people among teachers, students, school leavers and adults from this underprivileged community.
The Malezi Community Digital Hub is a program led by our Computer Aid Kenya office with a view to establishing one of the only hubs in one of the most vulnerable communities in Kenya. Less than a handful of NGOs work in Kitui Ndogo slum due to its hazardous sanitation problems, security issues, and its relatively small size (compared with Kibera slum). By developing the digital hub at the school ground, we are going to enrol 25 teachers from 5 schools into ICDL training, getting them certified in IT skills which will enable them to, in turn, train their students and be able to implement the digital curriculum in their courses. The digital hub will serve the teachers and students in Malezi school as well as other 5 neighbouring schools with an average student population between 80 to 150 students each.
