ICT Integration programme contributes to the Kenya Education Sector Support Programme (KESSP 2005 - 2010). KESSP joins ministries, donors, NGOs and other partners for improved quality of education in Kenya. A Ministerial ICT integration team has been set up and is responsible for the coordination and harmonization of all ICT initiatives within KESSP.

The VVOB ICT integration programme partners with the Kenyan Ministry of Education in two subprogramme components: ICT Integration in education and capacity building. The subprogramme of ICT integration in education is cross cutting and works with all directorates and units within the Ministry of Education.

The education sector in Kenya is still in its infancy in the inclusion and use of ICT. To integrate ICT appropriately in order to increase the quality of education, technology and teaching methods and education should go hand in hand. VVOB pursues an integrated approach and we simultaneously work with several national institutions that have mandates to strengthen the capacity of education managers at different levels, as well as that of teachers.
