In a bid to bridge the digital divide and enhance the quality of education, Isuzu East Africa has partnered with local authorities to establish computer labs in primary schools in Kakamega County. The initiative, which is worth over Ksh 10 million, aims to empower students with digital skills and provide equal access to education.

According to Rita Kavashe, the Managing Director of Isuzu East Africa, the company is committed to supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds and ensuring that both boys and girls have access to quality education. “We believe that every child deserves equal opportunities, regardless of their background or gender,” she said during the launch of the project.

The computer labs will be established in six primary schools in Kakamega County, targeting over 3,000 students. The initiative is part of Isuzu East Africa’s corporate social responsibility program aimed at promoting education and digital literacy in underprivileged areas.

During the launch, Kakamega County’s Navakholo MP, Emmanuel Wangwe, emphasized the importance of digital skills in today’s world. “Many students in rural areas are lagging behind in terms of digital literacy, making it challenging for them to compete with their urban counterparts,” he said. “This initiative is a step in the right direction towards bridging this gap.”

The MP also commended Isuzu East Africa for its commitment to supporting education in the region. “Their contribution will go a long way in enhancing the quality of education in our schools,” he said.

The computer labs will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and software, providing students with hands-on experience in digital skills such as coding, programming, and data analysis. The initiative will also provide training for teachers on how to integrate technology into their teaching methods.

Isuzu East Africa’s partnership with local authorities is a testament to its commitment to giving back to the community. “We believe that our success is tied to the success of our community,” said Kavashe. “By investing in education, we are investing in the future of our children.”

The project is expected to have a positive impact on the community, not only by improving education outcomes but also by increasing access to information and job opportunities. “With these skills, our students will be better equipped to compete in the job market and contribute to the growth of our economy,” said Wangwe.

The launch of the project was attended by officials from Isuzu East Africa, Kakamega County government, and local residents. The event marked a significant milestone in Isuzu East Africa’s efforts to promote education and digital literacy in Kenya.
