Getting Tablets into the Hands of Students

For children all over the world, access to computers at home is a huge issue

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, children in our program often lacked access to technology outside of the classroom. Whether living in a remote area on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, in villages where the internet is not available, or living in poverty in Eastern Kentucky where power and water bills are prioritized over technology, impoverished children lag behind their fellow students when they can’t keep up with classwork at home. The recent pandemic exacerbated all […]

Coping with Changes in Kenya

Helping Children from a Hidden Community

The Msamaria Mwema Centre in Kenya offers support to kids and families that otherwise might be forgotten

Kenya is a country with a large population — estimated at 53 million — in which overcrowding of major cities has become a huge issue. Due to a lack of job opportunities in more rural areas of the country, Kenyans are migrating into cities where they hope for employment — but instead, find a lack of adequate housing and essential services like education and healthcare. For decades, Children Incorporated has offered support to children and […]
