Faculty Manager presents a paper during the Youth Engagement Summit in Mauritius
Mr Christopher Momanyi, the FIT Faculty Manager presented a paper during the Youth Engagement Summit (YES) in Mauritius. His paper entitled OPPORTUNITIES PRESENTED BY AN ICT LITERATE SOCIETY THROUGH THE INTEGRATION OF ICT IN THE NON-FORMAL EDUCATION: A CASE OF JUA KALI SECTOR IN KENYA was based on the informal Sector Business Institute (ISBI)s integration of ICT in the non-formal education (http://www.eitkenya.org).
The conference was attended by ministers from Egypt, Mauritius, Sierra Leone, Botswana, Gambia and delegates from all over the world. The three day summit was organized by Extensia in partnership with the ministry of ICT Mauritius. The first two days had presentations from all over Africa on efforts to engage the youth in ICT and the policies that African governments are putting in place to have ICT entrenched in youth programmes and training. The summit served as platform for countries in Africa to share experiences in education and the ICT sector.
The third day had presentations from experts and workshops in various fields of ICT and the challenges that are being experienced. It culminated with the Ministry of ICT Mauritius awards, where several contributors in ICT both corporate and individual received awards. The next summit will be held in Gambia in March 2014.
