Safaricom partners with CloudFactory to facilitate Digital Skill training to Kenyan youths

The Safaricom Foundation has partnered with digital workforce firm CloudFactory to launch a program in Kenya that will see the youths armed with necessary digital skills in today’s tech workplaces.

As the workplace continues to evolve, becoming more digital and technology-driven in nature, it’s critical for young men and women to develop and hone those foundational skills,
” said Sanda Ojiambo, the head of CSR at Safaricom Foundation.

CloudFactory and Safaricom Foundation will help young people in Kenya build important digital aptitudes and experience, setting them up to be successful as they seek out jobs and begin to enter a competitive global job market.”

Today’s world is increasingly running on digital platforms and sometimes automated on artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). To be competitive both as an entrepreneur and employee, the youths of Kenya needs to be armed with industry relevant digital skills.

The program is targetting youth aged between 18 and 25 years old. CloudFactory is on a goal of training at least 2,000 youths across the region by the year 2021.

By advancing our mission in the region, we are extending our investment in the people of Kenya – providing meaningful work opportunities that uniquely align with the needs of the tech-forward companies we work with around the world,” added Mark Sears, founder, and CEO of CloudFactory.
