In 2016 SAMI applied for a small grant from the Economist Charitable Trust to pilot a new project aimed at using technology to improve livelihoods across a community.
We initially started with a set of 20 android tablets that were taken out to the Kitale region of Western Kenya. We’ve been hard at work to find innovative and effective ways that the technology can be used to support people, with an initial focus on schools, agriculture and enterprisigin women.
Since then the project has expanded to include more than 60 devices, and we are working with organisations and institutions around the world to provide real impact, with costs involved kept to a minimum. You can see the first update report published by the DCI team below:

We have been incredibly excited to see the huge impact seen through DCI, and are currently looking for ways to extend the project through 2017-2018.
