Training 25 Trainers train over 306 high school students (Model each one teaches one)
Collaborating with ten high schools.
Collaborating with Microsoft for funding, resources, and tools

Our program ensures comprehensive skill development by utilizing a combination of in-person and virtual training sessions, workshops, and mentorship opportunities facilitated by volunteers from the USA. A logic model will guide program implementation, promoting alignment with objectives and ensuring transparency.
We Are utilizing Microsoft resources and tools.


In less than a year, we have implemented our technology program in Kenya and the USA in collaboration with Microsoft. In Kenya, we are using an Upcycled shipping container as a technology class. We have trained 10 trainers, who in turn trained 39 high school students in Kenya. In the USA, we have started our summer Make Code Arcade program with 15 students. We are also training 15 trainers.
Our three-year goal is to reach 10,000 high school students in Kenya and the USA.
