Camara teams up with Dell, Computer Aid to deliver tech skills in Kajiado County

The project targets to deliver over 1.2 million devices in two years at a cost of Sh29 billion with additional investment in school infrastructure, teacher training, electricity connections and content development. 

Nairobi, Kenya, Sep 13 –  Camara Education has teamed up with Dell and Computer Aid to provide access to information technology and skills through the Dell Youth Learning Program giving two schools in Kajiado County the opportunity to start on their digital journey by integrating ICT into their everyday lessons. 

The two schools, Al-Huda Muslim Primary and Ngong Township Primary School, are the beneficiaries of an ICT-in-education project through which Camara Education sets up computers in classrooms and solar powered labs. There are two labs in each school and the classrooms have also been equipped.

Using a combination of solar power, energy-efficient Dell Wyse technology and air-cooled servers, the labs are built into well-lit, well-ventilated shipping containers and help take electricity supply out of the equation while bringing internet connectivity into the heart of communities. This solution uses less than four percent of the energy of a typical PC.

The computers and equipment were provided by Dell and deployed by Camara Education. The project management of the deployment of the solar lab was driven by Computer Aid International.

The Primary School ICT learning and Solar Program is complementing the implementation of the Digital Literacy Program by the Government (DLP) in all 23,951 public primary schools countrywide.

The focus of DLP (or DigiSchools) program is to enhance learning through the use of digital technologies with emphasis on digital content, not devices.

The project targets to deliver over 1.2 million devices in two years at a cost of Sh29 billion with additional investment in school infrastructure, teacher training, electricity connections and content development.
