The idea ensure that learning will proceed remotely in absence of school or teachers. The students will be issue with tablets installed with teaching and materials. The learning will proceed on tablets through interactive learning both teacher and students who observe social distance because the tablet will use Bluetooth technology.

Where are you located?

I live and teacher girls school in a small town in Kenya called maralal in Samburu County. The town is remote not easy accessible through road from major town in Kenya. The community are pastolist who moves with their animals to look water and pasture. For girls to access learning during this covid-19 pandemic is hard but it will be possible if they join E-community schooling during evening sessions or when looking after their animals.
