We do appreciate the effort of Cybercomb to facilitate state-of-the-art computing power in 2 government schools of Srikakulam District, Andhra Pradesh.
…the device CombPi can work without regular Internet or at the lowest bandwidth, providing last mile access to Cloud within a LAN even in the remotest of areas.

Arvind Shukla , Senior Scientific Officer, Education and Research Network (ERNET), Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, India

Cybercomb was a welcome relief especially because it aimed at enhancing the learning process from early childhood education through to primary school. The children’s aptitude and attitude towards subjects like Maths, English and Science has changed positively as the digital learning is entertaining. So much so that the kids have started coming in earlier than their usual class times to get to be able to work on the platform.

CyberComb-SIDAREC Digital Literacy Center

The Center provides affordable education and teaching of basic computer, IT and foundational skills to a range of learners, in association with Slums Information Development and Resource Centres (SIDAREC) at slums in Nairobi.

Our particular focus is on early childhood development amongst children of ages 2-6 years from non-literate communities with no access to school and no prior exposure to computers or technology.

This technology-based program enables children to learn at their own pace in their own space. This is particularly important in impoverished communities where children—especially girls—are expected to contribute to the work of the family or may not have a safe school environment.

Early findings in using CyberComb technology for self-directed learning have shown that children are able to self-organise into learning communities where children teach themselves and each other.

The mission is to bridge the digital divide by using Cybercomb frugal innovation technology for educating and empowering at least 1 million children from marginalized communities across Kenya, in line with Kenya Vision 2030.
