The First Lady, Mama Rachel Ruto, has officially launched the ‘Digital Skills Literacy Program’ in Nairobi’s Embakasi East Constituency.
The training program which is done in partnership with Computers for Schools Kenya, seeks to equip women with digital literacy skills and ensure inclusivity in the digital age.
“The rapid advancement of technology has transformed digital literacy into a necessity, and empowering women with digital skills is key to their personal and professional growth,” Mama Rachel Ruto said
The launch is aligned with the 2023 International Women’s Day theme: ‘DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality’, a powerful declaration aimed at leaving no woman behind in the digital revolution.
The program targets to train women in 500 women groups in Nairobi, before rolling out to other counties in Kenya.
