Our logo

The 'K' of Koni is symbolic for a person standing in front of a laptop, with the WiFi icon incorporated in the tip of the 'i'.
The 'P' of Pikin in combination with the 'i ' reflects a light bulb, referring to gaining new insights (knowledge and skills) in the digital field; the main objective of the Wan Koni Pikin Foundation!

How the foundation works

We provide training and workshops for individuals and groups. The costs for these training courses are made with donations and the efforts of volunteers and professionals who are committed to making this group digitally literate. We cannot tackle the digital divide alone. Companies, organizations and individuals can make a difference by sharing their expertise and/or investing financially in these projects that help close the digital divide. 100% of all donations are invested in these projects. Anyone who invests in these digital education development projects realizes that this will benefit everyone in the near future


In order to have a greater impact, we involve parents and volunteers in the areas where we provide training. Even though the training is over, these people continue the good work by continuing to share the knowledge with people and children in their environment.
