Meanwhile, Rockefeller Foundation unveiled a Sh35 million project targeting youth in informal settlements in Kenya, South Africa, and Ghana.
The Foundation recently funded digitisation of four million records in the Ear, Nose and Throat clinics at Kenyatta National Hospital at Sh34 million.
The contract was awarded to Technobrain, which recruited 35 youths from Kibera and Mathare to help speed up the process that will make records retrieval at the hospital easier.
“Digitisation of records at Kenyatta Hospital will make work easier for doctors in the hospital. It will save time and create efficiency at the institution,” noted James Nyoro, Rockefeller Managing Director.
“This is one of our flagship projects in the country to display that poverty can be fought using ICT. The project hires those from a disadvantaged background and helps impact on their everyday lives.”
“The youths are doing satellite jobs such as data entry, among other outsourcing jobs to American Companies,” he said.
