The Program in collaboration with LEGO Foundation offers a holistic, systemic, gender-responsive approach to introducing and scaling Learning through Play with Technology (LTPT) in Kwale and Kilifi counties in Kenya. Under Carol’s management, KPLAY will benefit from her knowledge of the local education system, commitment to supporting underserved populations and strength in building external relations with government stakeholders.
