MoMo’s Projects are intercultural educational digital exchange projects between students from schools on both sides of the wealth divide to improve the learning environment. MoMo’s citizenship education is in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Bringing students and teachers into contact with other cultures creates new perspectives, modern and attractive online learning environments and collaborations between the sister schools.
Both in the Netherlands and in Kenya there is an enormous development within education, due to new EDtech possibilities and better access to digital information and AI.
In June 2023, MoMo reached a major milestone in our program. The Kenyan partner organisation DEEP Kenya has successfully installed internet access at 11 Kenyan sister schools. This achievement marks an important step toward empowering students with modern technology and expanding educational opportunities. The schools have digital media rooms with 25 laptops, 4 projectors, 3 digital cameras and 4 Bluetooth speakers. Together we are making a lasting impact on the lives of these students and open doors to a world of knowledge and growth.
Stay tuned for more updates on our journey as MoMo continues to transform education school by school. Your dedication and belief in our cause drives us towards a brighter future for these young learners. Join us in celebrating this milestone as we inspire a generation of confident, connected and empowered individuals through education. Donate and help make MoMo’s summer crowdfunding campaign a success!
Spring High (20 students) in Amsterdam Nieuw West started an exchange with the students of the Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (KGSA) in Nairobi (20 students) last year. The MoMo Education methodology was tailored to the specific needs of the schools and their neighbourhoods. Next school year, the junior classes of Spring High will also join and the school raised more than 6,000 euros for their sister schools in Kenya during a winter campaign! Last school year it was mapped out what needs to be changed within the schools in order to achieve better performance, so next school year the students will develop projects and ideas that can initiate those changes. They do this together with the so-called “Local Learning Communities”, institutions and organisations, parents and other stakeholders close to the school that can help improve the learning environment of the children!
The Primary school “De Verwondering” (30 students) in Monnickendam, the Netherlands is having an exchange project with St. Andrews in Mwingi, Kenya (100 students) since 2020. The children (age 10-12) have been working on two projects: an exhibition about each other’s schools and a crowdfunding project to buy a water truck. Water is the blue gold and scarce in Mwingi. This year the students are working on a short video with the theme: “Nature and me”.
On July 10th The MoMo Movement will be launched. It has started to support the schools in local special projects, which are initiated by the students and the Local Communities.
