“Generally, what we are offering is scholarship for any young person interested in software development to be able to start a career in the tech sector,” he said.

Kimani said the organisation looked forward to partnering with several oganisations for job placement, mentorship and knowledge advancement of the trainees. 

He said applicants must be computer literate as the programme “is purely online as well as for those above the age of eighteen.”
