Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) has donated computers and other assorted ICT equipment worth Kshs. 4.3 million to Njiru-ini Secondary school in Nyeri County.
The donation is part of CA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme and is in line with the Authority’s wider mandate of enhancing access to ICTs in various parts of the country.
The donations included 20 desktop computers, 2 printers, and a sponsorship of Internet connectivity provision for one year.
Speaking during the handover ceremony, Communications Authority of Kenya Chairman Ngene Gituku said ICTs have now occupied the centre stage of human progress and as such, ICT skills must be availed to young people at their formative stages in life.
‘‘To prepare the next generation of innovators, we must expose our youth to ICT skills at a very young age. It goes without saying that individuals with basic ICT skills are likely to have better opportunities in the cut-throat competitive job market,’’ said Mr. Gituku
Others Secondary schools that have benefited from similar CSR initiatives are Gathaithi Mixed Secondary School in Kiambu, Kwale Boys Secondary School in Kwale, and St. Mary’s boys Kibabii Secondary School in Bungoma, where Communications Authority of Kenya donated computers, printers and Internet connectivity.
Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Information, Communications and Technology, Joseph Mucheru, who presided over the event, encouraged the students to take advantage and make proper use of these facilities that have the potential of transforming their lives.
“There are many initiatives, both from government and private sector, to increase use of technology. No one can doubt the power and potential of the Internet. It has flattened the world and offered opportunities we would not have imagined a decade ago. The Internet has changed how we do business, communicate and interact. The Internet and ICTs in general are now being used to make services more efficient and accessible to all citizens” noted Mr. Mucheru.
The school’s principal Ngatia Kagiri said the computer lab will immensely benefit the 200 students and transform the school’s ICT agenda.
