Dig in Vision x The Toolkit Skills and Innovation x GIZ partnership successfully deployed VR welding training program in Kenya

March 21, 2024

This initiative is a positive step towards improving vocational training in developing countries and highlights the potential for technology to revolutionize the way young people acquire the skills they need to succeed in the digital age. By using state-of-the-art technology and training solutions, young people in developing countries can receive high-quality vocational training that prepares them for success in their chosen fields.

The acquisition of our VR welding simulator solution further enhances the Toolkit's offering, providing a powerful tool for vocational training in welding. This highlights the potential for technology to transform vocational training, not just in Kenya, but in other developing countries as well.

With access to our safe, portable, and environment-friendly Dig in Vision VR welding simulator, young people, including women, can develop their skills in a controlled environment that minimizes the risks associated with traditional welding training. This, in turn, actively contributes to the feminization of the welder profession, creating new opportunities for women to enter and succeed in this field. Furthermore, the simulator allows for a more immersive and engaging learning experience, which is more effective in retaining knowledge and skills.

This project is a testament to the power of public-private partnerships in driving sustainable economic growth and development. With support and generous funding from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the German Government Organization for Sustainable Growth and Education in Africa, this initiative has the potential to make a significant impact on the Kenyan economy by providing businesses with access to skilled employees.

Overall, this initiative demonstrates the potential for technology to improve vocational training in developing countries, helping to create a more prosperous and equitable world.
