Due to the coronavirus pandemic, many of the partner organisations that we rely on for funding have faced donation shortages. With such a pervasive crisis at hand, they have needed to focus limited resources on the more immediate risks, rather than longer term projects such as education. With this reduction in financing, we will not be able to keep running the centre or continue paying our staff members as the camp emerges from lockdown. Lost time during education can be very detrimental and we hope to continue providing much needed skills and stability during these particularly uncertain times for refugees, such as providing wages and classes where possible.
As the current crisis subsides, we hope to continue expanding operations at the centre. The rate of growth this project has experienced over the past years has exceeded our expectations and funding forecasts. Rather than continuing to rely on large individual donors, we hope to develop a network of individuals and charities that can help fund efforts to increase the courses on offer, hire new staff and improve the facilities. Slow internet speed, for example, is a constant challenge that can be crippling when using coding software or trying to communicate with international mentors. With your help, we would be able to address these challenges quickly and continue to grow.
Supporting the Project
With a single contribution, you could help close the financial gap and ensure that students can continue with their courses despite the challenges caused by the coronavirus. If you can provide a continuous contribution, it would be hugely beneficial to the overall project, enabling us to make available much needed equipment and ensuring the successful development of the mentorship program. The small amount of 10€ a month would entirely fund a student following one of our higher-level coding courses.
After generously supporting this Computer for Kakuma project, you would receive a contribution certificate on how your donation has helped the centre. This would include a letter of thanks from the team in Kakuma, alongside photos from the centre. We are also developing a newsletter that would be produced by the local team in Kakuma. This would detail the ongoing activities and successes achieved by the staff and students and would allow you to keep up to date with how the Computer for Kakuma project grows.
