Sereverien commented on Coding Bootcamp meets Refugee Camp

Hi Chrystina, Gihembe would be a good place to take Actualize. Gihembe has also been existing for a long time, and there are more youths that would be interested in Actualize coding Bootcamp. Of course, there are also other refugees in Kenya that are needy.

Congrats, Alphonse! They're few people, especially youth, who can think in this way. I really like that it focuses on solving community pressing problems. Many students gaining much higher skills from school, and most of those skills are not applicable. I would suggest you work with local schools so you can share with them the best practices in teaching science. 

Please let us know if there is another way to support the implementation of this idea. Thanks, Sereverien

Sereverien commented on Coding Bootcamp meets Refugee Camp

I don't understand the reason to why there hasn't been a project like this before! Many thanks to SNHU's Global Engagement Team for this opportunity to refugees in East Africa. It's really obvious that SNHU has found innovative ways to incorporate technology in Education, especially in reinventing higher education. From my experience working with Kiziba students, they're ready and eager to adapt to the new curriculum brought by SNHU in partnership with Actualize. Based on how the project is designed in terms of expansion, I would also suggest to also think about other refugee youths in other refugees camps in Rwanda. Please let us know if there is any support you may need to make this project implemented.

Keep up with this great work, Chrystina! 

Thanks, Sereverien
