Give Kenyan kids access to digital education

Our Organisation

MoMo was founded in 2021 by Julia Strijland in collaboration with Sarah Wanjira, who has set up a trust organisation in Kenya. Since 2018 they have been developing the programme for digital school exchanges and created a 2 year educational program for both primary & secondary schools.

Our vision is to work together with volunteers and professionals within a Professional Learning Network Organisation to allow schools worldwide to work together on concrete community development projects, to improve the living and learning environment of the children.

Associated core values ​​are:
Respect for human rights
Transparency in our financial and organisational systems
Learning from our mistakes and sometimes ‘not knowing’ is based on compassion and empathy.
Open and research approach for innovative projects
Helpful attitude to contribute to equal rights

According to the statutes, ‘’Sister Schools has the objective to stimulate worldwide awareness and cooperation by enabling authentic, intercultural Project Based Learning (PBL) experiences. Students from all over the world can use the Sister Schools program connecting and communicating during school time, learning from each other through exchanging experiences, thoughts and beliefs/ideas, values ​​and culture. 

Pupils are trained in twenty-first century skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving learning, digital skills and intercultural collaboration and- communication. 

The second goal is to give more children in developing countries the opportunities for (digital) education. Digital learning spaces will be facilitated in schools, which otherwise would not have those resources. Through supporting the local schools, we support the achievement of all Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)  mainly to make quality education accessible to all children and to perform anything related to or conducive thereto. 

This purpose does not include making distributions to the founder or to those who participate as members of the foundation’s bodies.

The members of the (Supervisory) Board of Sister Schools do not receive any remuneration, neither directly nor indirectly, for the activities they carry out. They are, however, entitled to reimbursement of the costs incurred by them within the performance of their position and approved by the executive board. These reimbursements are made clear and are further elucidated in the annual report. The reward for directors and other employees is determined by the Supervisory Board in accordance with guidelines of the Goede Doelen Nederland.

Detailed information is available in the Strategic Plan of Sister Schools, as approved by the Supervisory Board in June 2022. An overview of main carried out activities per year can be found in our Year reports

Momo Education by Sister Schools Foundation expects all of its managers, employees, team members and local partner organisations to act in accordance with the Code of Conduct.
