On Thursday, 29th December 2016 I held an exploratory meeting with Hon. Michael Onyango (County Government of Kisumu) following my exit as the CEO at Kenya Christian Industrial Training Institute (KCITI) in Eastleigh, Nairobi.
The agenda of the meeting was the potential roll out of the Google sponsored Digital Skills Training Programme (DSTP) being promoted by our organisation, Diaspora Community Projects (DCP) Kenya
Fast forward to 4th, 5th & 6th April 2017, the venue being Tom Mboya Labour College (TMLC), DCP-Kenya was honoured to be one of several organisations alongside the County Government of Kisumu, the ICT Authority, Liquid Telecom amongst others that trained 3500 participants at the Barefoot Digital Youth Squad initiative.
Google has since upgraded DCP-Kenya’s collaborator status by connecting us to additional Training Delivery Partners which currently are: Africa 118, Centum Learning and Emobilis.
DCP-Kenya’s Country Director, Austine Oduor and I (Lead Advisor) are eternally grateful to Hon. Michael Onyango and the great county of Kisumu for helping raise our organisation’s profile.
