Bringing Internet to Nun-trepreneurs in Kenya

Project Leader:

Sister Hellen Celine Siratei

In rural Kenya, finding consistent and reliable internet access can be a challenge. This is particularly problematic for budding entrepreneurs who need internet to work on their business plans. The Missio Agricultural Initiative currently has over 40 nuns and priests enrolled in a Sustainable Agri-preneurship program at Baraka Agricultural College in Molo, Kenya. These project leaders are each working to transform their congregation’s farmland into commercially viable agricultural enterprises. As part of that process, they need to access internet at their farms in order to gather and record key data for their businesses. Today, many of these project leaders live in areas with no internet access, and must travel several hours to get to the nearest town in order to carry out essential business activities. Sister Celine Siratei is one of over 40 project leaders and would like to help her fellow classmates access internet more easily and reliably. To do so, she proposes providing each project leader with a Safaricom WiFi Hotspot, which will enable them to access internet on their mobile phones or computers anywhere that Safaricom operates. The cost of providing a WiFi Hotspot modem, router, and data package amounts to approximately $115 per user, creating a funding need of $5,000 for the 40+ project leaders.
