Community Computer Lab
Olalo’s community-based computer lab in Oyugis, brings much needed computer skills and technology to western Kenya.
Olalo offers computer classes to both students and adults alike, giving them the tools needed to enhance their school studies, develop marketable job skills and enhancing local business owners capabilities.
We offer several programs at the computer lab –business software for adults and older students, educational and research programs for all.
We also plan to set aside times for people who need to use a computer/printer for business purposes and charge a fee which will assist with the cost of running the lab.
Donations to our community computer lab covers all costs associated with the lab; computer maintenance and upkeep, our class instructor, building rent, utilities and office supplies.
With over half of Kenya’s population living in poverty, we don't expect most kids and adults using the lab to contribute monetarily for the classes. Those students can be asked to help out around the lab or in other areas Olalo works to offset the costs.
We’re giving a hand-up and not a hand-out.
We are excited to offer this service to the community and hope you will join us in our goal to enhance lives with skills that can change lives!
