DOT Kenya is part of the Canadian-led global network of DOT organizations (dotrust.org) that are leading economic and education change in countries throughout Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas .
DOT Kenya is an innovator in enabling people to access and apply information and communications technologies (ICT) to create education, economic and entrepreneurial opportunities. DOT’s vision is to make these opportunities available to marginalized people, especially women and youth, as a strategy to eradicate poverty, vulnerability and gender inequality.
DOT’s signature entrepreneurship program, ReachUp!, integrates ICT, life skills, and microenterprise development and is delivered in a cost-effective manner, using university graduates to train and build capacity of youth in their communities.
To contribute to its continued growth, DOT Kenya is now seeking to hire three dynamic Program Assistants to strengthen and sustain its operations in Western, Rift Valley and Coast regions.
Reporting to the regional Program Manager, the Program Assistant is responsible for the day-to-day coordination of the DOT program operations, partnership and stakeholder relations in the designated regional field area.
