Liquid Telecom, the leading pan-African communications service provider has successfully connected 152 schools to website domains as part of a broader effort to enhance schools abilities to deliver online learning and services across the country in partnership with Kenya Network Information Centre (KENIC).
The programme, launched in May 2020, features schools from across 19 counties including Bungoma, Trans Nzoia, Migori, Homabay, Kakamega, Narok, Busia, Kisii, Nandi, Kiambu, West Pokot, Nyamira, Siaya, Uasin Gishu, Turkana, Vihiga, Elgeyo Marakwet, and Kilifi with the target to register 2000 sc.ke domains.
Mr Joel Karubiu, the KeNIC CEO said, “The Pandemic has heightened the need for digital adoption to improve our current education systems. The need for schools to be connected and have an online presence to be able to conduct classes has never been more important than right now. Through this programme in partnership with Liquid Telcom, we aim to reach at least 2000 schools and register them on a unique identifier.sc.ke. A domain name extension for schools that will give access, enable and empower educators with the relevant digital skills to teach effectively”. Read full story here https://bit.ly/3q1Qldo
