In November 2018, Lewa was a winner of $250,000 in the Google Impact Challenge, Kenya. They joined the challenge to enable them to scale their Digital Literacy Programme across the wider northern Kenya landscape, and help to provide access to quality digital education to children and youth in remote areas.
Digital technologies are changing the way people live, work and learn. Young people who are not ‘digitally literate’ risk being isolated in a society driven by these technologies. Lewa’s programme supports and complements the Kenya government’s vision of making sure every pupil is prepared for today’s digital world. Funding from the Google Impact Challenge will allow Lewa to increase the scale of their programme and achieve greater impact.
