IREX’s Girls’ Learning Through Technology (GLTT) project in Kenya uses a technology-based approach to support girls’ education and development of ICT skills in low-tech schools through evidence-based practices and research.
In Kilifi County, IREX applies a cost-effective and scalable model for the GLTT project leveraging key activities and learnings from its holistic, systematic, and gender-responsive Kenya Play project (KPLAY) funded by the LEGO foundation. GLTT is funded by the Stone Foundation. Building on KPLAY’s Learning through Play with Technology (LTPT) curriculum, hybrid teacher-training approach, and ICT Play Labs, the Kenya GLTT project supports approximately 60 teachers in 15 schools to provide gender-responsive, technology-based education to 2,400 Grade 4 girls in rural areas.
Our end goal for this program is to increase girls' attendance, improve the quality of their learning in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects, and develop digital literacy skills.
