Created in 2011, Digital Divide Data (DDD) Kenya is based on the belief that the world’s poorest citizens can produce their own solutions to poverty with access to the knowledge, skills and opportunities that power economic growth. A pioneer of Impact Sourcing, DDD Kenya creates digital employment for talented, economically challenged youth by delivering high-quality business process outsourcing services to clients locally and globally. Information Computer Technology-enabled (ICT) employment opportunities provide training, work experience and tertiary education, allowing youth to benefit from higher incomes and improved employment options.
Services offered by DDD include digitization and content conversion for print newspaper archives and libraries, data entry and records management as well as specialized work that are increasingly important to local clients such as field research, handwriting transcription and digital marketing. International and local clients include: Ancestry.com, Fold3 (the web’s premiere collection of historical US military records), the Paris School of Economics, the World Bank, Financial Sector Deepening Trust in Kenya, and Kenya’s National Library Service.
