We set up
digital spaces
& train communities
on how to use technology.

Our goal is to bridge the digital & digital-gender divide by bringing the power of digital technology to women and communities.
We work in rural, underserved and isolated Kenyan communities with a mission to create opportunities for learning and interaction. We connect and transform communities by enabling access to digital technology. Technology is our tool for education, skills empowerment, promoting gender equity, community development, rural development and economic development.
