Senator Tabitha Mutinda Advocates for Digital Literacy at Africa Youth Leadership Forum 


Senator Tabitha Mutinda, the esteemed ICDL brand ambassador in Kenya’s political landscape, recently graced the Africa Youth Leadership Forum hosted at St. Paul’s University. The event served as a convergence point for the university’s management team, Africa Youth Leadership Forum members from diverse institutions, and leaders representing various sectors.

In the spirit of Nelson Mandela’s timeless words, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world,” Senator Mutinda passionately shared her commitment to championing digital literacy. She emphasized the importance of preparing students for global opportunities through digital skills, urging both the government to enact relevant legislation and students to equip themselves for the digital era.  

As emerging leaders are nurtured within educational institutions, the Senator issued a compelling call-to-action, encouraging them to seize available opportunities and proactively shape a brighter future. She underscored the necessity of staying attuned to global trends to thrive in the ever-evolving global landscape. 

As a notable highlight, Senator Mutinda extended a generous scholarship to six students who will be the first beneficiaries of the ICDL Certification at St.Pauls University further demonstrating her commitment to fostering digital literacy and empowering the youth. 

Notably, St. Paul’s University is currently undergoing an accreditation process to become an Accredited Test Center (ATC). The university’s top leadership reaffirmed their unwavering support for integrating digital literacy into their curriculum, signaling their commitment to nurturing well-rounded graduates equipped for the digital age. Situated on the outskirts of Nairobi, St. Paul’s University stands as a leading private institution with a substantial student population and additional branches in Nairobi and Nakuru. 

Senator Tabitha Mutinda’s advocacy for digital literacy at the Africa Youth Leadership Forum serves as a beacon of hope for Kenya’s youth, inspiring them to embrace digital skills and seize the boundless opportunities that lie ahead. With St. Paul’s University poised to embrace ICDL and foster a tech-savvy student body, the future looks promising for the next generation of Africa youth leaders in Kenya.
