    Internet Access for All Schools: Ruto’s Vision

    Published on

    To keep up with the ever-changing employment market and rapid technological development, President William Ruto has advocated for universal internet access in all schools throughout the nation.

    The head of state said in a meeting with Google on Thursday, October 27, that the cooperation would help train schoolchildren in new trends in their areas of study.

    He also said that using technology will help Kenyans find work in the future.

    There is a great potential for collaboration in adopting Google’s Computer Science Unplugged curriculum to equip the next generation of internationally relevant digital workers to empower young Kenyans with competitive skills as soon as possible.

    Ruto stated.

    However, he also pledged to create the country’s first Open University, which would make online education accessible to Kenyans at a low cost.

    In addition, he urged the international telcos to work with local enterprises, particularly those in the Juakali industry, to better incorporate technology and their expertise.

    According to him, this would help numerous businesses in Kenya break into international markets.

    Ambassador Meg Whitman of the United States and ICT Cabinet Secretary Eliud Owalo were also present.
