Student Testimony with our partnership with Dell TechnologiesIsaac is a 16-year-old boy in form 2 at Embulbul mixed secondary school in Kajiado County, Kenya. He lives with his mother and three siblings. The family can barely afford their basic needs as their mother, a casual worker who relies on menial jobs to sustain the family, is the only breadwinner; Isaac’s father died when he was a little boy.Isaac was rescued from dropping out of school two years ago by the community and taken to Embulbul mixed secondary school to complete his Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education. He walks 5km from home to school every day, morning and evening accompanied by his two elder siblings. Due to the distance, the journey is very tiresome and Isaac was often late or absent.Since the introduction of computers in the school, Isaac has shown a vibrant attitude towards learning and achieving his dreams of becoming an engineer as the computers have supportive content on maths, physics and other relevant subjects. He also enjoys the science apps that are installed on the computers. Isaac’s teacher acknowledges that there has been a great improvement in his learning and concentration, and in his attendance, compared to the days without computers.Read more about our partnership here: hubs.ly/Q01flL9c0 ...

Student Testimony with our Partnership with Dell Technologies“My Name is Hiwot Tadesse. I am 9 years old and I am in grade 3 at Abdi Adama elementary school in Ethiopia. Previously I had never used a computer and did not know what it does but after our school received computers we started learning and practicing on the computers. I’ll never forget the first time I touched the computer, I felt like I was on top of the world and was so excited. I usually use the computers to support my maths ability. The videos are very helpful, so are the games. After starting to use the computers it has made it easier for me to understand any subject to read more and practice.”Other students at Abdi Adama school also use Dell computers to learn basic coding with Scratch. Students get to program their own animations, quizzes and games. They are learning very important skills for the 21st century.Read more about our Partnership here: hubs.ly/Q01flDyc0 ...
