Digital Transformation Centre Kenya: Building Tomorrow’s Digital Society Together
In the Digital Transformation Centre Kenya, innovation, technical know-how, participation, political processes, entrepreneurship and research are brought together under one roof. With the support of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (GIZ) and the European Union, the Digital Transformation Centre is working to put Kenya’s citizens at the centre of the digital transformation. The centre aims to support the development of a fair, competitive and green digital economy and help to ensure an inclusive digital society in which no-one is left behind.
