Pathways Technologies has partnered with Konza Technopolis Development Authority (KoTDA) to train youth in Kenya on Data Analytics, AI, Machine Learning and Data science.

Through an MOU, the two will execute the training under the government’s Jitume Program Initiative that provides youth in Kenya with digital skills, e-services and online opportunities.

Pathways and Konza seeks to work together to provide high-tech training programs as they seek to fill the skills gap in the country while boosting economic sustainability and growth.

During the MOU signing, Pathways Technologies CEO Joel Onditi said the firm’s leading-edge tech and innovative teaching will create a vibrant innovation and technology system.

“The training programs will provide hands-on experience, practical knowledge, industry-relevant skills, and employment opportunities to empower youths and students to become key contributors to the digital revolution,” said Onditi.

Acting KoTDA CEO John Paul Okwiri pledged to back the MOU to meet the growing demand for tech skills in Kenya and to continue positioning it as a regional hub for technology talent.

“The MOU with Pathway Technologies has come on time. As Konza Technopolis, we shall provide all the necessary support to ensure that this project is successful in our endeavor to provide one million digital skills to our youth across the country,” Okwiri indicated.

The MOU is banking on high-tech training and innovative skills to create a sustainable talent pool that can drive tech evolution, attract investments and boost regional economic growth.
