Primary school students collaborating on digital literacy

Computer Classes for Rural African Schools

Digital skills unlock global opportunities.

Currently, we have 4,000 students from 10 schools across rural Kenya. We are selecting our next 100 schools in Kenya, to prepare an additional 40,000 students.

Rural Africans lack opportunities to make a living.

There are more remote jobs available online than local jobs available anywhere. TechLit students learn fundamental digital skills that will unlock global opportunities.
