By Humphrey Muchuma and CTW Team

The School of Science and Technology recently entered into a partnership with EDU Plus Africa to offer Cyber Security training to 15 students from the School of Science and Technology for a period of 4-6 months. The training will equip the students with the skills to explore the vast opportunities in the digital space.

Speaking to CTW, EDU Plus Africa Managing Director and CEO, Mr. Humphrey Muchuma noted that the partnership was a representation of the core of EDU Plus Africa’s operations- creation of employment opportunities for African youth.

Economic inequality is one of the most threatening global challenges of our time compromising on stability and social progress. More than half of the world’s poorest people are in Sub-Saharan Africa and are earning less than a dollar a day. EDU Plus Africa is dedicated to filling this employment gap by employing an inclusive employment practice that is at the core of our business. We hire and provide career development opportunities to people who otherwise would have limited prospects for formal employment. We have and continue to transform the lives of young men and women. In return these young people are benefiting the communities they live in,” he said.

“Our strategic partnership with USIU-Africa provides students and alumni with a meaningful career path, leading to a lifetime of fulfilling opportunities in the digital space. In the next 2-3 years we are looking at recruiting at least 500 youth to work in Cyber Security and Software Development space with our tech partners in the United States,” he added.

Over the next five years, EDU Plus Africa hopes to have a team of at least 2,000 youth working in Kenya.

“The creation of youth employment is a sustainable means of reducing income inequality, as it ensures that marginalized and vulnerable populations have access to formal employment and training, giving them the opportunity to lift themselves and their families out of poverty,” he notes.
