Digital Life: Kenya
In July 2017, Good Things Foundation launched Digital Life: Kenya, a 12 month pilot project in partnership with the Kenya National Library Service (klns).
The pilot tested the effectiveness of elements of the Good Things Foundation’s digital inclusion programme, working through libraries to explore how the internet can help alleviate the economic and social challenges people in Kenya face.
“Young people didn’t come to the library much before we had computers. the community will change. The children will take the excitement back home.”

Good Things Foundation worked closely with 10 pilot libraries, providing access to a free online learning platform Learn My Way Kenya, Digital Champion training, and webinar support. A further 53 libraries are taking part with access to Learn My Way Kenya, online learning guides, and additional support.
