Huawei and ‘Close the Gap’ partner for digital skills in Kenya

Chinese tech giant Huawei and a Brussels-based NGO ‘Close the Gap’ launched a partnership on the provision of digital skills training to rural and remote communities in Kenya. The DigiTrucks i.e., mobile digital classrooms are intended for teachers, women, and youth who live in remote areas and have limited access to the Internet and digital skills. Estimates suggest that around 7000 individuals will receive training in Huawei’s DigitTrucks on issues such as digital literacy, online safety, and e-waste management. 

The partnership is part of Huawei’s digital inclusion initiative ‘Tech4All’.
