Microsoft Corporation in conjunction with Homeboyz Foundation have launched an online portal dubbed TukoWorks a website that aims to provide Kenyan youth with free resources, training, career guidance services and entrepreneurial opportunities. The move by Microsoft is to bridge the information gap for job seekers, aspiring entrepreneurs and school leavers by providing a network of accessible opportunities on various openings as well as necessary training on how to start a new enterprise. “We hope that the TukoWorks portal will become a national authority on employ-ability and entrepreneurship that will bridge the gap for job seekers, aspiring entrepreneurs and the young people of Kenya. Our aim is to match the right skills to appropriate jobs, equip youth with the necessary training, tools and knowledge required to succeed in their desired job,” said Microsoft manager, Kunle Awosika. – See more at: http://www.kachwanya.com/microsoft-introduces-employment-entrepreneurship-portal-kenya/#sthash.4UYzxjhT.dpuf
