Our Projects

Our Educational Program

We are strongly convinced by the idea, that our partners in the camp know their needs the best. Thats why we work very close together with the people in Kakuma Refugee Camp.

Through our two centers and an internet café, we provide a number of different educational courses on computer.

See here a list of some courses, which we provided:

– Higher Education connected learning (social media, digital marketing and IT)
– Nanodegree (advanced coding and programming degree)
– Computer basics (introductory IT)
– A Good Start (life philosophy, coaching and female empowerment)
– New Africa Media Youth (developers working on an app)
– KYF freelancers (online freelancers)
– KIRON (online university)
– Various other individual online courses that we have been donated by other organisations (Microsoft, Udemy, etc.)

Computer center one

Our first project was constructing a computer center in Kakuma Refguee Camp, Kenya. Through fundraising we provided 20 computers and the finances to build the centre and obtain all necessary materials. The center was made entirely with recycled materials, local fairly paid labour and is run through renewable energy. This project involved collaborating with the SIR, UNHCR, & Windle Trust to be able to use the land for construction next to a pre-existing educational library.

Internet Café

In collaboration with SIR (Solidarity Initiative for Refugees) we rented out a space to provide computer services within Kakuma Refugee Camp. These services include internet connectivity, computer access, printing, and scanning.

Computer center two

Collaborating with SIR (solidarity Initiative for Refugees) and Xaviers Project, we built a second computer center within Kakuma Refugee Camp to enable more classes and courses to be held. The first center was also moved to the site of the new center to ensure that the learning spaces are kept together and that students participate with each other. The new center was also completely constructed with recycled materials, local labour and it runs on renewable energy.
