The Computer Center

SHOFCO’s income-generating computer center—one of the only wireless hubs in Kibera—hosts 16 computers outfitted with high-speed internet and basic computer software packages. Beyond affordable printing, copying and internet access, SHOFCO also hosts computer literacy classes, which are in high demand in slum communities. In Kenya’s incredibly challenging job market, those who lack access to computer technology face extreme obstacles to attaining the skills they need to be competitive for jobs that enable them to provide for their families. Our computer center allows our promising community members to bridge that gap, and achieve the skills they need to build a better life.
