Our mission at Ngong Road Children’s Foundation is to ensure that we transform the lives of our students. In order to achieve this, we ensure that we provide quality education and provide the necessary resources to smoothen this process. In our quest to get more computers for our Blockchain Lab and the Computer Lab, we applied for computer donations at Safaricom Foundation through the ‘Ndoto Zetu“ which translates to ‘Our Dreams“ initiative.
The Safaricom Foundation through the “Ndoto Zetu” initiative partners with different organizations and communities and support them in transforming lives by providing them with the needed resources and opportunities. They have worked with communities across all 47 counties in Kenya to provide solutions on Education, Health, Economic Empowerment, Water, Environmental Conservation, and Disaster Response, which are key sectors in empowering and providing relief for communities. We were honored when our application was considered and we received the computer donation.
On Thursday, the 3rd of May we had a handover ceremony for the computer donation. The event was held at the NRCF offices and we had representatives from the Safaricom Foundation and our programs manager, our employment programs officer and some of our TechMates were also in attendance. The event’s purpose was to acknowledge and appreciate the donation and celebrate the positive impact it would have on our students’ education.
NRCF thanks the Safaricom Foundation for its donations and for joining us at the handover ceremony. The computer contribution will allow TechMates and high school grads participating in the coding bootcamp to efficiently study and enhance their talents, which will undoubtedly help them get better prospects in the future. We have also been able to equip the computer lab at the Elimu Hub with extra computers for our children to utilize, and we feel that by working together, we will be able to build a brighter future for our students via the use of technology.
