President William Ruto’s administration, via the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, is implementing the ‘Finya Computer Itoe Dollar’ free online training program, aligning with the Kenya Kwanza administration’s commitment to fostering the adoption of opportunities within the digital economy.

Derived from Ruto’s widely known phrase, ‘Weka dollar mfukoni,’ made during numerous public rallies, the programme seeks to empower young Kenyans with digital skills and allow them access to opportunities in the gig economy.

The objective of the programme is to equip young people with the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes for digital/online work to enable them to access decent work and earn an income from the Gig & Freelancing Economy,” the Labour Ministry said in a notice.

The Ministry reports that the training program will consist of two modules. The first, named the ‘Basic Module,’ will deliver training in data entry, digital marketing, and virtual assistance.

The second, named the ‘Advanced Module,’ will provide skills and knowledge in ‘AI for Graphic Design.’
