Nakuru County has joined forces with QHALA and the Kingdom Seeker’s Church in a concerted effort to combat youth unemployment and promote digital empowerment. This initiative is driven by the need to address the global shift from traditional manual jobs to the digital economy.
Dr. Samuel Mwaura, the County Secretary, noted that the program aims to encourage youth from vulnerable backgrounds to participate, thus unlocking their potential and creating employment opportunities. Accompanied by Resource Mobilization Chief Officer Alex Maina, Dr Mwaura emphasized that the Nakuru Digital Hub Center is set to launch on November 15 at the Tower One Building, with a target of providing free training to 150 young individuals.
Dr. Wanjiku, Chairperson of QHALA, and Mr. Githinji Njogu, leader of the Kingdom Seeker’s Innovation team, held discussions on strategies to harness the potential of young people and generate online job opportunities within the digital economy.
Nakuru County Government will play a pivotal role in facilitating this collaboration, focusing on policy formulation and coordination to ensure that the initiative aligns with Governor Susan Kihika’s manifesto, which emphasizes digitization and employment creation.0
