Ajira Digital Programme implemented in Makueni

The  Department  of  Education, Youth, Sports, Information, Communication and  Technology (ICT)  in  the  Makueni County  Government  has  collaborated  with the National government to implement  Ajira Digital Programme in the area.

Speaking  to  KNA at her office in Wote  on Thursday, the Director  of  ICT  Makueni County, Cecilia  Mutua  said the programme  will  be taking place at the Community Information Centres (CIC) which offer basic ICT training and E-government  services to  citizens hence allow the youth opportunities to access ICT training.

She  further  said  that  the  centres  where  the  training  will take place, include Wote, Matiliku, Mulala, Tawa, Nunguni, Kasikeu, Kikima  and Kalawani.

Mrs. Mutua  said  that  the initiative seeks to promote online work for the youth and build their online work careers and  also  build  a nation of brilliance and obligation among the youth in Makueni.

The programme aims at equipping the youth with the tools, trainings and mentorship needed to enable them work from  anywhere at any time using the Smartphone or other digital devices and internet.

“Through  this they will become self-employed and give them an opportunity to enjoy economic freedom as they will earn an  income online, improving their livelihoods at the same time, safeguarding social economic standing for their families.” she said.
