Super. Many thanks, Ashley. Much appreciated!

I'll share this with the team, including our IT manager who will find this very interesting.

Best wishes,
Chris

Hi Ashley

Unfortunately the general Goodpush site won't go live until November. Apologies for sending a link which is still a work-in-progress, but this is where the online knowledge-sharing platform would be hosted from.

In the meantime if it would help, we could send you the latest version of the Goodpush Project Cycle which we've been working on in the last few weeks. I can send that to you by email as it is an image. I hope this helps, but of course do let me know if any further information would assist and we'll be very happy to send it on!
Best wishes,
Chris

Dear Innocent, thank you very much for your comment and your interest in the ICT aspect of the proposal. There are a number of ways in which we ensure that our idea would be sustained beyond the project period. Firstly, by training Skateistan educators to deliver the ICT education training module, the project builds the capacity of internal staff to continue to deliver training a grant period ends. The fact that around 70% of Skateistan’s educators are former students also helps ensure ICT skills learned are replicated within the organization over time.

Secondly, by making the ICT training available remotely online, the training can continue to be accessed by other Skateboarding and Sport for Development organizations cost free over an unlimited period. This will be achieved via Skateistan’s new online platform - www.goodpush.org - which will go live by the Fall of 2018. Do feel free to look out for it!

Thank you again for your thought provoking questions and best of luck to you and your wonderful idea about empowering locals at Kakuma Refugee Camp
