An NGO, Cherehani Africa Initiative which is a nonprofit organization (NGO) based in Kenya has partnered with Anike Foundation to provide computers to primary schools that work with the Cherehani Africa Girls School Uniform Project.
The project allows women to make uniforms for the most improved and best-performing girls in grades 4-8. The uniforms are sold below market rate to make them affordable to poor families. Allowing girls this opportunity brought attention to the fact that the schools the project worked with did not have computer laboratories for the students. Cherehani Africa realized that most students had not been given the opportunity to interact with a computer and that their education was hindered without computers.
The NGO is also providing technical assistance on the use of the computer laboratories.
It also already provides educational opportunities to less fortunate women in rural areas. Cherehani Africa aims to eliminate much of this poverty by giving members the resources to learn about using formal and self-employment channels for profit. Through these efforts, Cherehani Africa provides women with the opportunity to dream and the tools to reach for those dreams. Women would be able to maintain their own fashion businesses and, in turn, would be able to afford food, proper shelter, clothing, education, and medication.
