Kenya Chapter in partnership with Tunapanda Institute
Category: Sustainable Development Goals Support
Kibera is one of the largest slums in Africa and houses about 250,000 people. Communities living in low income areas have to make the choice between a meal and the internet. The project aims to build a wireless network covering a 20 km range that will give educational empowerment to 4 villages in Kibera, and train teachers and students on digital literacy, wireless networking and Google skills. A data center will be setup at Tunapanda Institute with Internet connectivity to host e-learning and school management platforms. 7 schools, 2 youth centers and 1 women’s center will be connected to access the cloud based platforms.
