KIBRA SCHOOLS EMBRACE ICT PROGRAMME

 

Kibra Member of Parliament Hon. Kenneth Okoth, today launched ICT programme in 9 public primary schools and 5 secondary schools in Kibra Constituency. The programme is informed by the need to promote information and communication technology among children of school going age and The Kenya Vision 2030. We are living in a global village where ICT has become an integral part of development. This therefore calls for a people who are ready to embrace change and technologically compliant. Embracing ICT skills at a young age will help the students improve on their communication skills, writing skills, editing skills, critical thinking skills, and improve their innovation and creativity skills. The students will be in touch with global trends thus becoming relevant and competitive in the job market.

We believe that this initiative will act as a bench mark on how the computer for schools programme should be implemented in Kenya. Through this programme 9 public primary schools received 15 computers, screen projector and a laser jet printer, while 5 secondary schools in Kibra received 10 computers, screen projector and a laser jet printer. Some of the schools that benefited from this initiative were:

Primary Schools:

  1. Shadrack Kimalel Primary School
  2. Olympic Primary School.
  3. Ayany Primary School.
  4. Kibera Primary School
