Martin Kimani, Caroline Wamaitha – Digitoto IT Solution

Date grant awarded: February 7, 2019

When Martin Kimani was growing up, he did not have the opportunity to learn about computers or the skills related to information technology. Since this time, he has made it his mission to help other kids gain access to such skills, which is how his project, Digitoto IT Solution, was born. Digitoto is a fusion of two words, digi- standing for digital and -toto being a Swahili word for kids, thus digital kids.

This project, led by Martin Kimani aims at empowering kids and youth on computer and life skills while offering mentorship opportunities in informal settings. Funds from The Pollination Project will help Martin develop the website, cover costs for laptops, and purchase a projector, thus increasing impact in the community.
