The University of Nairobi has expanded its commitment towards Innovation for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by signing a memorandum of understanding with I Choose Life – Africa (ICL).

The partnership, which offers an opportunity for the University of Nairobi to collaborate with ICL as a partner during Nairobi Innovation Week 2018, will see the two institutions designing interventions such as; Clean Energy for better health and education outcomes, Improving learning outcomes through technology in education, and improving adolescent and youth Sexual Reproductive Health And Rights (SRHR) through a holistic program design.

ICL further committed its alliance to the course through financial sponsorship by donating one million Kenya shillings to the Nairobi Innovations Week 2018.

Speaking during the meeting, Mr Mike Mutungi, the Founder and CEO of ICL, stated that the focal point of the interventions will be to solve problems in different communities in Kenya and Africa.
