Internet comes to Kenyan Schools

The Internet has been a major source of information and the spread of information globally. Unfortunately for some the Internet has not been made available despite the United Nations declaration deeming the Internet a basic human right. For numerous groups of school children in Kenya they are able to access the Internet for the first time in school. Eighteen Internet hubs were setup for Kenyan primary schools in hopes that pupils will be able to access the Internet at school. The project was funded by Microsoft and the British Council in order to serve more then 100 schools. Out of Kenya’s 639 primary schools this serves a large portion of the education system. With over crowding in schools this has raised a greater interest in learning. This project is part of a larger scheme to implant more then 187 digital hubs around sub-Saharan nations.
