Microsoft Philanthropies has announced grants for more than 100 non-profit organisations in 55 countries, including Kenya.

The grants are a component of the $75 million (Sh7.5 billion)  commitment Microsoft made to increase access to computer science education around the world through Microsoft YouthSpark, as announced by Microsoft chief executive officer Satya Nadella last year.

Among the beneficiaries include I Choose Life Africa (ICL) and the African Centre for Women, Information & Communications Technology (ACWICT) in Kenya.
