SAP an enterprise application software company partnered with the Kenyan Ministry of Information and Communications and Multi Media University to train ICT skills and enhance employability of graduates from disadvantaged backgrounds.

"Skills for Africa' is the first chapter in Kenya, SAP has future growth plans on technology business models for Africa", says Andrew Waititu, Managing Director, SAP East Africa during an event on 25th Wednesday 2013 at Multi Media University, Nairobi.

The programme, part of a larger African effort focusing on five countries that was officially launched by SAP in May, began pilot preparation in Kenya in September 2012. The East Africa chapter targets approximately 75 university graduates annually and is focused on a variety of skills key to success in today's competitive job environment, including SAP certification.

The go-live of this programme in Kenya today comes against the backdrop of the pressing demand for technology solutions as well as the need for the right talent to be developed in Africa specifically with a view to employability. The six-week training module, hosted at Multi Media University in Ongata Rongai, will cover technology, business, finance, logistics as well as critical soft business skills. Graduates from the course will then be matched with job internships with SAP customers and partners, including some of Kenya's leading companies.

Victor Kyalo, Kenya ICT Board Acting CEO, and SAP officials including Franck Cohen, SAP's Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) President and Pfungwa Serima, CEO of SAP Africa presided over the event.

With growth and the scarcity of skills on the African continent top of mind, this programme - a first of its kind in the industry in Africa will offer selected students across the continent the opportunity to develop world-class IT and business skills, effectively giving them an opportunity to play a role in contributing towards Africa's future economic growth and infrastructure development.

The "Skills for Africa programme" a multi-million euro investment, is the African chapter of the SAP Workforce of the Future campaign aimed at tackling various complex skills challenges in EMEA and part of SAP's global mission to help the world run better and improve people's lives.
