The Jembe Fund was born. Right now Jembe Fund focuses on providing laptops, tablets, data access, online curriculum, and tutor resources in Kenya and Tanzania. If you’re wondering about the name, Jembe means “hoe” in Swahili. The simple farming tool is often all a peasant farmer has to farm and feed his family. Therefore, a hoe is a critical tool needed by the farmers. Likewise, tablets and internet access are fundamental if high school teens are to succeed in life.
