A UK charity is to start helping technology entrepreneurs in Kenya.
Computer Aid International signed a memorandum of understanding with iLabAfrica, an ICT research and entrepreneurship hub within Strathmore University in Nairobi.
A Computer Aid International spokesman said: "This fantastic new partnership is the start of a collaboration on a variety of ventures such as institutional capacity building, ICT courses and seminars, and entrepreneurial training.
"The partnership will serve to greatly increase ICT services in communities, as well as helping to train the next generation of ICT entrepreneurs in Kenya."
Computer Aid International, based in Brunswick Way, north London, aims to reduce poverty through practical ICT solutions.
It professionally refurbishes donated computers, monitors and laptops. The charity also works on numerous initiatives designed to further increase access to ICT among poor and disadvantaged communities including the provision of e-training programmes for nurses and low-cost software for partially sighted individuals.
