Huawei Kenya, a renowned global leader in information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, has forged a groundbreaking partnership with MaMa Doing Good, a prominent non-government organization led by First Lady Rachel Ruto. The alliance aims to empower Kenyan women by providing them with essential digital skills and bridging the digital divide that often hampers their economic and social progress.
In a significant move, the two organizations recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) outlining their collaborative efforts to deliver digital skills to over 14,000 women groups throughout Kenya. The strategic partnership focuses on equipping MaMa Doing Good and the women they serve with devices to facilitate learning and digital literacy training.
Dr. John Chumo, CEO of MaMa Doing Good, emphasized the importance of private sector involvement in driving programs with NGOs and the government to empower women. He stated, “Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication, and inclusive economic growth. The equipment and digital skills the women participating in this Huawei program acquire will be a catalyst for change to improve their lives in profound ways.”
