EREVUKA KUWA SONKO-ICT VILLAGE
According to the latest research by UNDP, 75% of Kenya’s population is below 30 years of age and only 50% of Kenya’s youth are expected to find gainful employment in their lifetime.
With this regard the Erevuka Kuwa Sonko youth empowerment forum was created to rally the youth in all sectors, one being IT, gain access to entrepreneurial and financial information to develop not only themselves but their nation. IT developers and programmers are needed within each pillar of Kenya’s Vision 2030 because each pillar needs modern technology to be efficient, productive and improve livelihood.
Visit the ICT Village at the Erevuka Kuwa Sonko Forum in Dec 8-10 and meet successful BPO’s, grantees, Capital Ventures, Start ups who are thriving in the IT sector. Youth also have a chance to display their innovations and demonstrate their skills & knowledge in IT.
Microsoft East and Southern Africa are willing to sponsor student developers and techies interested in exhibiting at the event if they utilize Microsoft as a platform for their web developments and software! This could also be your chance to be recruited in the Imagine Cup Competition- The world’s premier student technology competition hosted by Microsoft! http://www.imaginecup.com/
