Date grant awarded: June 1, 2016

Promoting education for sustainable growth is a key factor in eradicating poverty among youth in the Mathare slums in Nairobi, Kenya. To best bring literacy to the youth in this area and thus educational opportunities, Douglas Gichorio Mwangi has created the Oasis Mathare project, whereby youth can access libraries, acquire skills in information and communications technology and learn social skills through a communal toy center. With a seed grant, the library will expand to hold books that are not included in the school’s curricula, providing students with insight to the global community.
