Fueling Dreams Of Young Africans

The Kuyu Project aims to teach young African students how to use various forms of social media to make a positive impact in their communities.

By doing this, they believe that  "...we are in essence fueling the dreams and aspirations of these young people which in turn may turn out to be the innovations and solutions that will change Africa.

We plan to achieve this using this wiki which people can contribute content based on the following five broad themes:

  • Create
  • Connect
  • Collaborate
  • Learn
  • Share
"We believe that these are the fundamental skills the students will need to make a positive impact in their communities. We now have a task to flesh out these themes with specific content about the available technologies that can help students achieve this.

"The most important part of this project is relating the content of the wiki to our mission of empowering young minds across the continent to make a positive impact in their communities."
