The project “Vita Computer School” is intended as an education program for the poor who have little or no access to computers.
Vita is a latin word and means “Life”.

The VCS project has its roots in the acquaintance of Thomas Sommer from Switzerland, who runs his single company there, and the Kenyan Geoffrey Matiti, a graduate student of ICW (Institute of Church Growth & World Mission), who was allowed to visit several churches in Switzerland. Through the contact and initial cooperation, a friendship emerged, which is now to bear fruit in the form of a church-based education program.

The project is a pilot program in Kenya (Mwingi) and should be open to everyone. Such a project is important for third world countries, especially Kenya, which needs digital systems and has many poor children, who would have a hard time without training in this field, as computer systems are practically part of life today.

Addition on the 4th of August 2022:

The computer school now has finally started as “Springs Web Team”, based in Mwingi, Kenya. This website if the first active web project of the school.
