"Today, the world is ushering in a new era of education. One that is personalized, adaptive, and captivates the interests of the learner. We are here to replicate and spread this model for out-of-school children, using technology as a driver of this change."
When we were walking through the narrow alleys [of the Mathare Valley slums], it was literally impossible not to step in the raw sewage and the garbage alongside the little homes. But at the same time it was also impossible not to see the human vitality, the aspiration and the ambition of the people who live there.
The slum is the measure of civilization.
One of the remarkable things about slums is that they do develop their own social organization and economy and even culture that is, on some level, functional and in some cases, remarkably resilient. This is kind of amazing.
The slums are not a place of despair. Its inhabitants are all working towards a better life.
