About the project
COVID-19 had disrupted normal learning because schools were shut. Most pupils could not learn from home because they could not access online leaning especially in informal settlements. This had left them lagging behind in their studies.
Safaricom Foundation and education NGO, Dignitas, partnered to hand over tablets to students from over 1, 000 households in Kawangware and Dandora. The students could access e-learning materials free of charge via both SMS and online platforms on content providers such as Eneza Education.
The students are learning daily with the mobile devices. They are accessing education content without spending money on data or airtime. Students from over 1,000 households are accessing education.
