Community Computer Centers

Most people in the poorer areas of Africa have little access to technology. Except for their phones, they do not own computers. Even the few community computer centers have difficulty with the exorbitant cost of the internet. The Internet is expensive, and most people and businesses cannot afford it.

For example, the income for refugees in the camps of Kakuma and Kalobeyei ranges from $14 per month to $90 per month. Monthly data plans, if you can afford a router, are $60 per month. If you only have a cell phone, then you could expect to pay $10 per DAY for data bundles. This is the highest cost for LMTD when we provide educational, vocational, and leadership courses.

We work with existing local nonprofits to provide a safe space for our participants to learn, and we provide the internet they need.

Most of the courses we offer have 35-75 people and are 4 days long.  A small group may cost us $1,400 just for individual data bundles with terrible connectivity. We are committed to make the difference by empowering these currently marginalized people to think and create outside of their circumstances.

Their passionate participation and commitment to their brothers and sisters in their community are inspiring to us!

Community Computer Centers are teaching them to fish, and they are reaching out to teach others.

There is no limit to what we can do when we level the playing field and create opportunities for leadership. These intelligent, determined, and educated people are exceeding our expectations in seeing what is possible with open access to the global economy. We are excited to watch them excel!

The goal of establishing our Community Computer Centers is to provide more computers and access to the internet through routers. In 2023, we will be able to order satellite dishes with even better connectivity, which will allow them access to more programs and job opportunities.
