Absa Bank  has launched a digital literacy enhancement programme with an iam of establishing 66 computer labs in schools across the country.

The bank is investing Ksh23 million in the nationwide project that is being spearheaded in partnership with Computer for Schools Kenya (CFSK) and will see 1,500 computers donated to different schools in the coming months.

The two organizations rolled out the initiative at the Kikuyu Township Primary School by donating 20 desktop computers that are fully networked and fitted with relevant software to support learning. The donation was accompanied by desks and tables refurbished from the waste collected during the bank’s rebranding exercise completed last year, saving the environment up to 12 tonnes of e-waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
