Tech hubs yield fruits


The Public Private Partnership Commission (PPPC) has said it is impressed with the impact of technology hubs which were created under the Digital Malawi project, and are being implemented with funding from the World Bank.

The tech hubs were created to improve human capital in the technology sector and boost business through training.

On Friday, tech hub participants were showcasing strides made in job creation and knowledge sharing since creation.


PPPC Chief Executive Officer Patrick Kabambe said he was impressed with how the initiative has created jobs, improved human capital and supported the youth in rural areas.

Kabambe said there are six more tech hubs added to complement what the others have already done.

“We emphasised to them about sustainability, and the hubs have given impressive sustainability strategies,” he said.


One of the firms that received a grant for the formation of a tech hub is Dzuka Africa Organisation which is training youths in technology in different districts.

Dzuka Africa Organisation Managing Director Dineo Mkwezalamba said the project has helped them grow as a company and expand their knowledge impartation drive among youths.

“We were planning to have our penetration strategy in three years but this grant has helped us penetrate at a fast rate and, aside from that, we have devised strategies on how to continue and sustain the business after this project,” she said.

Digital Malawi is a World Bank-funded project which aims at pushing Malawi to digital usage of operations.
