DESIGN 2 TRANSFORM: COMBINING TRAINING WITH COMMUNITY SERVICE
Design 2 Transform (D2T) is a training initiative for young developers in web/app development, social media management and digital storytelling but with a community service component.
D2T Hackathons and training events involve developing websites for Community Based Organisations (CBOs) such Children homes. In this way, in a very short period of time, the trainees receive skills in different facets of web and app development while the CBO’s receive much-needed online visibility to aid their fundraising efforts.
Hear the Steven Machua and Nelson Kwaje talk to Ebru TV Kenya about the Design 2 Transform initiative. Also read more about the initiative at their iHub blogpost.
It is great to see young people want to be part of changing our communities for the better as they pursue their career and entrepreneurship goals.
