We believe that everybody should live on a level playing field, and that adoption of technology is the most effective equalizer.
We are leveling the playing field: everyone deserves modern tools. We repurpose surplus technology for communities to educate, do business and lead.
An Africa where every child is able to access and leverage modern tools to learn and reinvent their world.
From its inception, Zawadi now has morphed into a community center for the village of Mogotio. My dream is to be able to provide all the required resources a typical school would have to help these children learn and become productive adults in their community. Unfortunately, much of the government funding does not extend to millions of children in remote areas across Africa, so their growth and development is often forgotten.
I grew up in a small town in outside of Chicago, Illinois. If you grew up in a community like mine, you had answers all around you. At a very young age, children in my community play with toys, designed to teach them shapes, colors and the basics of language. When they get older, they have books, music and videos that teach them how they can fit into society.
My name is Nelly Cheboi. I am the co-founder of TechLit Africa, techlitafrica.org. TechLit Africa fosters a more technologically literate Africa by building computer labs in schools. We are more than just access, we strive for effective use. We aim to consistently monitor key indicators of digital literacy and collect feedback from our students and their communities.
