4 years ago we shipped his a laptop and an internet connection to the Kakuma refugee camp and started to teach students via Skyppe. This camp is based in Kenya and houses 200,000 refugees who fled from war and hunger in several African countries. The Kakuma project involves 350 teachers from 65 countries who offer free classes Math, Science and English.
Now it's time to move to the next level. In December 2019 we shipped our own 2 schools to Kakuma in partnership with Maggie Program. These innovative buildings will house up to 150 students each. Maggie 1 will be decicated to the Skype project and Teacher Training. Maggie 2 will be dedicated to Flipped Learning via video lessons and training professional programmers.
There are two ways to support us:
Houses 168 students and will allow classrooms across 6 continents to interact with the refugee students. Teachers across the world will be able to teach Math, Science and English via video conferencing.
Students across the world will be able to have an informal chat with the refugees about culture, hobbies, habits and religion.
Houses 120 students: 50 with computer and 70 without computer. This school will allow students to learn from video lessons, covering the complete Kenyan curriculum and created by some of the best teachers across the world. This school will also allow us to train professional coders pointing out to start their own business.
Our Goals for 2025:
+5,000 people coding
+500 certified teachers
+200,000 global project participants
