“The program offers a range of ICT skills, starting from basic IT knowledge to more advanced diploma-level training. Through this initiative, women are being equipped with the ability to repair, maintain, and utilize digital technology effectively, thereby enhancing both their personal and professional development,” Huawei noted.

Additionally, the program includes instruction on utilizing various digital platforms for marketing purposes, as well as educating women on online safety to prevent fraud and exploitation.

Recent research, like the GSMA’s Mobile Gender Gap Report 2023, paints a promising picture for Kenyan women and mobile internet. The report highlights a significant increase in mobile internet use among women, suggesting they are steadily closing the gender gap in this crucial area.

The training sessions, led by experienced CFSK trainers, are designed to be intensive, interactive, and informative. Covering crucial aspects of digital literacy and security, the program ensures that participants not only grasp the fundamentals of technology but also learn how to navigate it securely and efficiently.

Beyond empowering women within the Joyful Women Organization, this collaboration extends its impact to the youth in Uasin Gishu by offering free digital literacy training.

By equipping women with digital skills, the initiative not only fosters personal growth but also contributes to the economic development and inclusivity of women in society.
