About The Cause
Butonge school is a mixed school located in Bungoma, Kenya. Being a rural school, the current connectivity to internet and available resources to upgrade this system is minimal. The school has an enrollment of 1,300 pupils who are in need of developing technology skills to advance their education. The teachers at Butonge are determined to give their students the best education possible and need additional resources aside from their handful of XO laptops and one teacher PC to participate in distance learning, sharing of cultural ideas and behaviors.
Even with the limited resources, a few students have already been able to connect with other students around the world and have experienced global collaboration first hand. This campaign will now give them the ability to connect on a daily basis, instead of having to relay on slow internet service that consumes a large amount of time in the classroom.
