Teaching Kakuma via Skype

Every child deserves an education

About the project

We are a group of highly motivated educators from all over the world offering education to African refugees via Skype. On June 2015 20 Microsoft Expert Educator Fellows (find our pictures on the bottom of this page) decided to do something good. All passionate about technology and education we decided to teach Math, Science, English, etc via Skype to students of Kakuma Refugee Camp.

Skype-a-thon: connecting 24 global schools to Kakuma

During the Skype-a-thon (Dec 3+4 2015) we managed to connect the Kakuma students to 24 global schools from USA, India, Israel, Belgium, Portugal, New Zealand, Brazil, Austria, Denmark, etc. All together these calls resulted in a stunning 137.000 virtual miles!

Teaching Refugees via Skype

The schools of Kakuma Refugee Camp are short in resources. There is a 1:10 textbook ratio and there aren't any devices at all. By raising funds we are trying to increase the level of education. Want to help us? Please donate
