IT Trainings in Nairobi’s slum Mathare for young people

Roughly 500,000 people live in a very confined space in Mathare. Access to education is a challenge for most young people there anyway, and even more so in times of Corona. Schools in Kenya will probably remain closed until January 2021. Together with “Bildung fördert Entwicklung“, “Mathare Community Center Library” and “Media Mundo” we have been offering computer courses in the community library “Glimmer of Hope” in the middle of Mathare computer courses since July. Besides basic computer skills, we want to teach how digital technologies can be used to attract public awareness for Mathare. Over the next few months, we want to teach 300 young people digital skills to better prepare them for their professional future.
