Students in Konexio’s Malawi program have completed their skills training and are moving into the practical part of the course, while engagement continues through workshops for our alumni students from previous cohorts.
The current group of students are actively earning income during freelancing, and have all successfully registered on at least one platform, overcoming a major hurdle for refugees, who lack easily-recognized identification. Their next big challenge is to land clients. So far, some have been successful, finding a niche in translation and AI data annotation.
We have officially launched a new cohort of 60 students in Nairobi, in partnership with RefuSHE! The students started their training on June 6th, and will graduate in early December. The Digital Inclusion Program Nairobi (DIP) will equip these young refugee women with employable skills to take up digital and digitally enabled jobs in the growing digital economy.
