Help us finish our new village Uwani Hub building

Finishing our hub means we can achieve our vision 2030 WordPress empowerment Goals.

We started this project on June 2nd and thanks to everyone in the WordPress community, we have gone so far. Pictured below is where we are right now, we could not finish before our teenagers' summer camp in August 2021 but we hope we can finish before this year, 2023, ends!

If you have been following our works, then you know we have been working on putting up a new building that will accommodate at least 30 workstations for our programs (the teen pre & summer camps, women in tech BootCamp, WordPress BootCamp, and workshops & our digital skills classes).

We hoped the building would be ready by January 2022, but we have not been able to meet our target for opening. We have a new target to meet in time for summer camp again this year August 2023, we hope to be able to meet this for the sake of the teens who pass through our programs.

To finish & open the building, we now need at least $9000 due to inflation and an increase in the cost of materials, our 36-person workstation current quote is also now approximately $7,500, and the 36 units of Laptops we will be procuring from Computer Aid will cost approximately $9200, shipping inclusive.

Altogether, with $25,700 - we would be able to get back on our feet at the hub and continue running daily programs for our audiences.

The picture below is where we started from..

Our Vision 2030 WordPress goals are:
  • To train 5000 teenagers and females in the use of WordPress software & digital skills by the year 2030
  • To build a community of 500 active contributors to the WordPress software particularly among our teenagers within our hub community by 2030
  • To train linguists in our community on translating WordPress to our major local language(s), build a community of Polyglots, ready to teach others what they have learned
