Nairobits is a registered trust in Nairobi, Kenya and has been in existence since 1999. The name of the Trust is derived from ‘’byte’’, a unit of digital information that consists of ‘bits’. It signifies the bits used to encode a single character of text in a computer. The name is relevant based on the trust’s focus on ICT and the context of NairoBits’ work. NairoBits was created to empower youth from under-served backgrounds, using Information Communication Technology (ICT). The primary target group is disadvantaged youth from the informal urban settlements of Nairobi aged between 17 and 24 years of age. Youth aged between 15-24 make up 20% of Kenya’s population but are largely disadvantaged in terms of basic human needs, including access to education and skills development in various areas. We exist to promote creative and innovative use of ICT that positively transforms and empowers the youth for an enhanced quality of life, envisioning a workforce with adequate access to equal opportunities and a positive impact in the society.
