"Tunapanda" is a Swahili word meaning, "we are planting, growing and climbing." We believe that future growth in opportunity and freedom on our planet are inextricably linked to youth education in underprivileged areas. In particular, education in computer literacy and digital self-expression. Tunapanda funds, installs and operates computer labs in East Africa (one day: globally) and trains youth in digital-era skills. One goal is a system that anyone in the world can copy for free and deploy with minimal training. We are busy planting, growing and climbing digital forests of learning. Join us.
Qualified teachers are scarce in Africa, and their time is valuable. Videos are great and free.
Proprietary software is too expensive. Our computer labs run entirely on open source software.
“Free” online content is expensive if you pay for bandwidth. Tunapanda spreads it offline.
Short feedback loops and engaging activities are particularly important in low-income areas.
