Children and youth

Imara Academy is seeking a grant to institute a Digital Learning Program with the objective of helping all students at Imara School increase their learning skills using the same digital resources available to children all over the world. We plan on buying one Kio-Kit which is essentially a classroom in a tablet form. The kit comes with 40 tablets, 40 headphones, multiple digital textbooks and other materials that help students learn better. The students at Imara come from underprivileged background and lack in resources. By helping institute a digital learning program, Imara academy will help equip these students with the resources and skills they need in an increasingly digital world. These students will also access resources which otherwise are out of reach in a rural African setting. The objective is that by the end of the year the students will have learned how to use digital tools to better access learning materials and provide them with tools that will put them at par with their peers anywhere in the world. Funding in the amount of $7,000 is requested for staff training and to purchase the required hardware and software for the school’s resource room.
