ISOC Chapterthon Project: Shule Tarakimu

ISOC Chapterthon Project: Shule Tarakimu

Chapterthon is a global Internet Society (ISOC) Chapters marathon, where all ISOC Chapters can participate by developing a project within a timeline and budget to achieve a common goal for the development of education and the Internet. Internet Society Kenya Chapter initiated a project in St. Christine Education Centre, which is located in Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya. The project aimed at creating a focal point of Internet connectivity for academic purposes at St. Christine Education Centre to serve other education schools. The motive behind the initiative was to use the Internet Society Chapterthon funds to bridge the gap in basic education in the excessively marginalised region of Kibera. Kibera constituency has experience volatile political demonstrations that has been disrupting education and other learning processes in the constituency. Skilled teachers and mentors are also not able to access the learning institutions during the demonstrations. Internet Society Kenya Chapter nominated four Chapter members to drive the project to completion. The project has been successfully implemented at the institution with the setting up of a local server to host and distribute contents, install and setup network infrastructure and deliver learning contents to the students. During the project proposal, various participants were involved in the learning: Teachers, primary schools pupils, high school students and the community. They were trained on various digital literacy programmes and graduated with a certificate of participation. Internet Society has achieved the objective of the project proposal and hopes to expand the scope of the project with more future partnerships. Internet Society, Internet for All
