2014 Kenya Primary School Tour:   Small Solutions Big Ideas, along with a team of Kenyans rolled out the introduction of XO laptops and teacher training in seven primary schools in Kenya these last three weeks starting at the end of January.  We have trained 125 teachers and introduced laptops to more than 950 children.

We traveled north of Nairobi to the Mt. Kenya area, then west past the rift valley up into the Laikipia  (wilderness area) plains , then south into the tea plantations on the green rolling hills north of Nairobi and to several schools within communities close to Nairobi. The landscapes are green, fertile, or dramatic expanses of plains.

What strikes anyone traveling around Kenya is the number of children.  They are everywhere.  If you happen to be driving through rural villages in the late afternoon, the roads are filled with children in their schools uniforms, sandals or barefoot, with their backpacks.   

The new government  made the purchase of technology for education a key commitment of their election platform.  Meanwhile the children and teachers of Kenya have been waiting.  The excitement of the arrival of our team of trainers was overwhelming.  Kenyans are gracious and welcoming, but the singing and dancing ceremonies we received were impressive.

The team in Kenya,  Sandra Thaxter, Krys Kakoba,  Bonaventure Masika,  Fred Juma Wakasiaka,  Rose Weseka, Herine Menya, Kevin Ndungu, Arthur Irungu.
