Young people and decision-makers in Mathare learn IT

The Mathare Community Library Center (MCCL) in Nairobi, Kenya is located in a very poor district where around 500,000 people live in disadvantaged conditions. Many families only share one room for sleeping, eating, living, and school drop-out rates are high. A place like the library is therefore an important contact point for young people, where they can do homework, read and learn, exchange ideas and develop their digital skills. Together with MediaMundo, we will further develop the capacities of the small library for educational services in the coming months, made possible by funding from the North-South Bridges Foundation: the library will be better equipped with textbooks and IT infrastructure, training capacities of the MCCL will be developed and tutoring and IT educational services for different target groups will be expanded.
