Vision:
Quality Education for 21st Century.
Mission:
Transform Education by building the capacity of schools to embrace 21st century education through a judicious teacher professional development program and use of affordable and appropriate technologies. Watch Video below: -


Objective: To use the time and distance annihilating properties of ICT’s in transforming the chalk and talk methods through pedagogical ICT integration to improve the quality of teaching and learning in Kenyan Schools.
Information and communication technology (ICT has) has tremendous potential to transform teaching and learning.
