Our Approach

The Nairobi Play Project is built upon intergroup contact theory, with the goal of cultivating intercultural dialogue, Empathy and mutual understanding through game design and a safe space for participants.

Our multifaceted curriculum embeds intercultural dialogue activities throughout the game design process, and leverages tools such as Scratch, Makey Makey and Empathy Toys to strengthen youth's computational thinking skills.
