Over 20,000 people attended Kenya’s 59th Mashujaa Day Celebrations on Monday, and President William Ruto distributed scholarships to them. The event took place at Nyayo Stadium.
The Head of State claims that registrants will receive free access to a 16-unit course that cost the government Ksh. 100,000 each. To begin the course, spectators just scanned QR codes at the stadium.
The Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State University, which offers programs to help students get ready to handle the dynamic digital world, is the provider of the courses.
President Ruto announced that everyone at the stadium would receive a free scholarship from Arizona State University’s Thunderbird School of Global Management to study global entrepreneurship and innovation.
The program aspires to lower Kenya’s current unemployment rate, which was 10.4% in 2020 and expects to graduate 10,000 students annually.
