The 1 Slum 100 Computers project was a program designed to provide free computer training and entrepreneurship mentoring for disadvantaged youth in the Eastern Nairobi slums and informal settlements, in sessions over a period of 6 months which eventually led to the beneficiaries designing of a profitable computer-based business.

At completion of the training and mentorship, each group was then to receive a loan package of basic equipment worth an amount not exceeding Ksh.250,000, for their business plan. On top of that, they were to receive project personnel to work with them for the business development until the loan is fully repaid. For self-sustainability, the program required loan repayment with interests of 12 and 15% if paid within 12 months and 24 months respectively.

The project started its implementation on November 3rd, 2014 with the following three youth groups participating in the program as the first (pilot) bunch, also known as, Class I

  • New Generation Outreach- Mathare

  • Big Achievers Self Help Group- Kariobangi South and
