help us grow

At Learning Lions we educate young people, from impoverished and isolated areas of East Africa, in IT and business skills. The young talents are empowered to become economically independent, through their own effort and work, by providing digital services to clients all around the world. We show them a clear path to entrepreneurship, and support them all the way. In doing so, they can join the global digital economy to earn a living and boost their communities.

In these first years of existence, we have achieved proof-of-concept for our educational and empowerment program. And we have seen the power of digital literacy to change lives first hand. Now is the time to scale up in Turkana and beyond. We can do more: offer digital vocational training for more and larger cohorts of talented individuals. There are many waiting to enter the program. You can help us to make it happen. Thank you!
