What Is Nairobits?
Nairobits Trust is a not for profit organization registered in Kenya in 2001, whose vision is to empower youth from disadvantaged backgrounds using Information Communication and Technology (ICT). We do this through providing the undeserved young people with a combination of training, mentoring, job placements and other business development services.
The primary target group for NairoBits is disadvantaged youth from the informal urban settlements of Nairobi, who are out of high school and are between 17 and 24 years of age. These youths are largely disadvantaged in terms of basic human needs including access to education and skills development in various areas. The Trust envisages a situation where the trained youth access employable ICT skills that would improve their ability to enter the labor market, through formal or self-employment.
NairoBits exists to promote creative and innovative use of ICT that positively transforms and empowers disadvantaged youth for enhanced quality of life.
Empowered youth who positively impact society.
NairoBits upholds the following values:
- Solidarity with disadvantaged youth
- Passion for creativity and innovation
- Diversity and Inclusiveness
- Working in Partnerships
- Equity and equality
