Giving Internet to the underserved youth of Kenya
Kenya is the second largest county in East Africa, with the largest and most diversified economy. Home to ambitious and well-educated young people eager to participate in the country's workforce, and, as of June 2022, more than half a million refugees in settlements of Kakuma, Dadaab, Nairobi, El Doret, Nakuru, and Mombasa.
Kenya has recently passed significant reforms to help establish sustained economic growth, social development, and political stability, and they have demonstrated their intent to bridge the digital divide by enhancing the digital infrastructure and increasing the affordability of Internet services. Despite these efforts, however, the Internet penetration rate is still at about 32% and Kenya is still struggling with problems like weak private sector investment, economic vulnerability to internal and external shocks, and youth unemployment. The latter, as we see it, is a big obstacle, hindering the solution to many global problems.
This is why, together with our educational partners, we are providing the underserved youth of Kenya free training courses in subjects relevant to today's global workforce, and giving them devices and the Internet to use the gained skills to change their lives for the better.
