A new partnership has been launched to provide digital skills training to rural and remote communities in Kenya.

The DigiTruck project, a brainchild of Huawei, has been launched in partnership with Belgium nonprofit organization, Close the Gap, at the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Telecom World in Budapest, Hungary.

It is Huawei’s latest effort driving its digital inclusion initiative, Tech4ALL.

Huawei DigiTruck is designed to increase awareness and accessibility of digital skills in remote homes through mobile digital classrooms converted from truck containers.

Olivier Vanden Eynde, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Close the Gap, said for over 15 years, Close the Gap had been bridging the digital divide in developing countries by providing high quality refurbished ICT-devices to more than 5 700 projects with a social impact.

The official said with the different DigiTrucks, they had been able to reach even the most isolated communities that have little or no access to ICT, also bring quality training and education to these areas.
