EkoBits opens its doors

The Bits Family has welcomed a new addition to their network: EkoBits. The school kicked off last month with their first course. Just like the other Bits schools it offers training in creative technologies for youth from underprivileged backgrounds leading them to income generating opportunities. Young people that have never used computers, have learnt in these first weeks already how to make presentations in Powerpoint and edit in Photoshop. May this be the start of a bright future for the students and the school.

Don’t miss the EkoBits facebook where it provides a photo diary of how every week is going.
