The Chez Kristo Youth Home project has been successful and we have enjoyed the work. The boys are learning and growing. Every day they show off a new skill or talent. We have been blessed with much support and guidance through the trials and tribulations that accompany starting a challenging project with an extra challenging population.
In 2015, all of the youth will be enrolled in school and on the path to new futures.
Our technology division is hard at work! TabLabs pilot project will begin in both Tanzania and Kenya. Using tablets and solar power, we will turn the tables of how data is store collected and used by those in developing communities for their empowerment. We are embarking on our Apps for Development adventure and will be working on a new East African owned software company, eMagine Development. By the people of East Africa, for the people of East Africa. The Mombasa tech team are almost ready and Mbegu Shape App will be tested and launched for farmers. The new eMagine health tool will start its development with a new Dar tech team. And we begin research on the best way to develop apps to support education through observations with the children on their likes, dislikes, and understand of the operation and enjoyment of the devices for “leapfrog” learning.
