Why Ajira Digital Training?

The government is actively working to use local talent to move 50% of outsourcing and online jobs to Kenya over the next ten years.

In a prior interview with the CS ICT, more than 100,000 Kenyans said they currently make their whole living from online activities. And, as the government boosts ICT spending, this number is expected to rise after the COVID-19 pandemic tested the limits of physical work. 

Currently, a single person living in Kenya needs at least Kshs. 20,000 per month in terms of finances to meet their most basic needs. If they had access to digital employment, young people could begin to meet their basic necessities. The availability of digital employment will increase prosperity and the middle class nationwide. At the same time, additional people in the middle class translate into more company prospects and direct GDP development.

Politically, the project will strengthen national cohesion and integration and promote equitable development in order to realize Vision 2030. Socially, jobs mean people will be able to earn a living wage, and they are less likely to participate in crime and destructive behavior.
