Teacher Training | Orphans Overseas

October 2014

The Karibu Centre is a place of hope, refuge and learning for children from the slum communities surrounding Thika. More than 350 preschool children and 2,000 primary students benefit from the center’s educational programs, which aim to eliminate the achievement gap for young learners. The center provides an IT training academy for primary school teachers from nearby schools as well. Team4Tech volunteers from Coursera, Facebook and Google returned to the Karibu Centre to provide more in-depth teacher training in digital literacy, 21st century education and STEM topics. The team also performed hardware and software maintenance on the installed base of computer equipment and developed a social media strategy for the Karibu Centre to promote wider public engagement.
