with Kenya's government in a ceremony that was presided over by the
Prime Minister, Hon. Raila Odinga.
The aim is for IBSG to support Kenya's ICT Board in the development of
up to 300 entrepreneur-led "Pasha Centres" across the entire country.
A Pasha centre is an e-enabled, connected community centre that
provides a wide range of Internet-based content and services ranging
from e-government services, basic net access, training,
videconferencong to e-health and telemedicine.
This is a very significant project because it builds on the current,
countrywide optical fiber network which is nearing completion.
Business opportunities will be provided to the entrepreneurs who will
be running the centres.
