Last year you helped reconnect hundreds of students in remote Maasai communities to their education during COVID-school closures by funding an offline learning program that became a lifeline for them. You can learn more about the impact your support created through this program in our 2020 Annual Report.
In response to the overwhelmingly positive reception this emergency tablet program received last year and its potential to continue to enhance student learning in remote communities, we've chosen to integrate it into our regular programs in 2021. Currently we're piloting an expanded version using tablets and a R.A.C.H.E.L (Remote Area Communities Hotspot for Education and Learning)at a new secondary school we partnered with the community of Olmesutie to open earlier this year.
The Give Life-Changing Education to 500 Maasai Girls project was originally set up as a short-term emergency response program to COVID in June, 2020. Due to the integration of this work into our regular programs this year, we’re deactivating this separate GlobalGiving project at this time. Remote, tablet learning will continue to be funded through our other GlobalGiving project: Keep Maasai Girls Learning in Kenya, which funds all of our core programs.
If you haven’t previously donated to that project, and want to stay informed about our tablet and other program work in Kenya, you can sign up for quarterly emails at our website at forthegood.org/contact. Alternately, make your next donation to Keep Maasai Girls Learning in Kenya, which will ensure you continue to receive quarterly updates through GlobalGiving.
On behalf of hundreds of Maasai students in Kenya, we remain eternally grateful for your support last year.
Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating.
