Safaricom has donated airtime worth ksh 525,000 to Kibondeni College to enable students continue with e-learning.

This is part of the TVET programme launched by Safaricom to enhance ICT skills in the work market.

“Part of our commitment to TVET was to put in place sustainable infrastructure for youth training, and we have been presented an opportunity to use technology to enable students to continue with their training. Supporting the students with airtime ensures that they can access learning material suited to their areas of study through online platforms,” said Steve Chege, Trustee, Safaricom Foundation.

350 students are set to benefit from the airtime donated . 100 more students will benefit from this programme come next year.

“Most of our students come from low income backgrounds, and the donation by the Safaricom Foundation will enable them to continue with their studies remotely. We are also part of the TVET programme that will see the Safaricom Foundation give scholarships to 100 of our students in Nairobi and Kilifi, and we look forward to future partnerships that will benefit our youth,” said Lynda Kasina, Principal, Kibondeni College.
