In partnership with 01 Talent Africa, LakeHub, the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLGA), and the County government of Kisumu, Zone01 Kisumu is offering a fully-funded software development training set to launch in Kisumu County in September 2023. This will make Kisumu the first county to host the first digital 01Talent intelligence center in East Africa.
