Airtel Kenya has extended its support for digital literacy in peri-urban and urban communities across Kenya by offering more routers and 3G connectivity to ensure free internet connection services to the Intel Mobile Caravan under the She Will Connect program.

Following the official launch of the Intel Mobile Caravan in September 2016 by Airtel, Intel and other partners, a three day training was organized between 7th and 10th February to equip the trainers on the new content, platform and schedules that will be adopted in the next phase of campaign for the caravan and the BRCK KIO kits.

The training culminated in a breakfast meeting where the pilot phase report on the caravan and BRCK kits was shared highlighting the successes and challenges of the initial roll out project. It was reported that the pilot phase program had impacted the lives of 3,200 beneficiaries in the four counties namely, Narok, Nairobi, Muranga and Machakos where the caravan toured.

The Intel Mobile Caravan targets women, teachers as well as students and provides free ICT training. Airtel Kenya will provide high speed 3G connectivity to an additional 10 BRCK KIO kits that will be taken round various counties in the next phase of the campaign. The next phase campaign will target eight counties including Uasin Gishu, Trans Nzoia, Kakamega, Narok, Embu, Nyandarua, Homabay and Tharaka Nithi.


Speaking during the event, JoyWo CEO, Mr Abraham Samoei applauded the great success that was achieved by the Intel Mobile Caravan and the three day training for the JoyWo trainers.

Airtel Kenya Managing Director Prasanta Das Sarma pledged the firm’s support in the initiative. “As a company we are devoted to delivering solutions that enrich the communities that we serve. As such we remain committed to this partnership with Intel and other key partners to continue offering internet connectivity for this initiative. We are delighted that this initiative has so far impacted the lives of many people by empowering them to reap the benefits and access the boundless opportunities that come with being connected to the Internet.” said Prasanta.
