We are making big progress! It is back-to-school season in Kakuma Refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement where Kakuma Ventures provides Wi-Fi coverage with 17 access points in 6 Wi-Fi zones. Students, parents, and teachers in this part of the world are grateful, but also wondering what will happen amid the pandemic!
Our goal is to ease their concerns. This situation is affecting millions of students, parents, and teachers in thousands of remote villages in the region where our solution is needed. We aim to help by expanding our wireless network solutions closer to the people and provide them with the access they need to the internet. This will help them get access to learning and supplies as needed.
How are we helping? This opening school term we have provided free access to 10 more locations in the Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement at senior secondary school, bringing the total number of subsided access to 110 girls and boys. One of them, Hou, has to travel up to 1 hour to reach the Wi-Fi zone.
At Kakuma Ventures we are working hard to expand our network to cover most blocks in the Kakuma refugee camp and Kalobeyei settlement.
