Saint Mary's is a public primary school in Mogotio, Kenya. It is one of TechLit's largest schools, with roughly 1,000 students.

How Saint Mary's Helped Us Grow

Saint Mary's forced us to improve our process.

We started computer classes at Saint Mary's shortly after Mogotio Primary, our first public school. When we started, Saint Mary's had more students than we'd ever handled before. We started with class sizes of over 50 students!

Because Saint Mary's had so many students, we were forced to improve our process really quickly. From the very beginning, we were challenged with developing an efficient time-table.

Eventually, we learned that if we took classes during lunch breaks, before and after school, every student could have their own time with a computer twice per week.
