Digital transformation might significantly change Kenyan communities by increasing economic growth and urbanization, alleviating social inequality, and improving people’s lives. Agenda 2063 of African Union, SDGs goals, and Connect 2020 Agenda could be enhanced by the utilization of digital services and technology in towns and villages.

This will improve digital divide and pathways in the underserved communities. SDGs goals, priorities, and capacities will be improved.
To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and improve livelihood, digital transformation is crucial than ever. Digital technology is a launching pad for socioeconomic development, education, and poverty reduction. Kenya now has more than a million internet users, nearly twice as many as ten years ago.
