TechLit Africa with Nelly Cheboi

TechLit Africa is a non-profit on a mission to lessen African poverty by leveraging the internet.  Rural Africans lack digital skills and computers to gain from the digital economy, even though developed countries have an abundance of used computers.  That’s where TechLit Africa comes in.  They accept used computers, refurbish them with custom classroom code, ship them to Africa, and establish relationships with schools that provide space for the labs they create.  In this episode, I interview Nelly Cheboi, one of the founders of TechLit Africa.
