Get the ball rolling...!
There are many ways you can help us, but especially in this early phase we need donations to get the next courses of the educational program Learning Lions on the way!
With Learning Lions we teach and train high potential youth in specific ICT skills increasingly demanded on international markets. Learning Lions aims at transforming the youth talent into abilities so as to enable them to earn a living on the internet and participate in the world activity while remaining close to their families in their home region.
Learning Lions is a registered non-profit in Germany, therefore we can issue tax-deductible donation receipts.

The Learning Lions school
Apart from the basic need to run the program, we would also like to construct our own facilities to make the Learning Lions school permanent. Currently we operate from rented facilities in Lodwar, Turkana.
For this we already got a beautiful plot of land from the local government, along the shore of Lake Turkana, the world’s largest desert lake. There, we would like to build a self-sustained IT campus, which will board up to 100 Students and enable us to have several classes at the same time. The construction cost amounts to 200.000 USD. We are grateful for any support!

I’m Davies, 20 and I am a web developer. After school, I had the chance to start my training at Learning Lions/Tunapanda, where I have discovered programming and the joy it brings me. Through the Startup Lions program I was not only able to finish my education I also started working on several projects with the help and guidance of Europeans IT mentors! I am now about to create my own business in this field together with 4 other programmers. It feels good to be “connected” to the world and I cant wait to have my own structure to continue my path!

I’m Fatuma, 26. I have been passionate about painting all my life and worked as a painter in the last years, but before joining Learning Lions I had no idea one can draw with computers, too. It’s fascinating and fun! I learned how to draw in Adobe Illustrator and started earning a living through online micro-tasking. So far I have designed children’s books, invitations, birth cards, logo, calendars, brochures, album covers… It already runs so well that I am now in need of an assistant! It’s great!
