Digify Africa, Facebook to tackle unemployment
Digify Africa and Facebook have reaffirmed commitment to tackling unemployment in the country through transformational digital skills initiative, ‘Digify Pro’.
This is coming as the duo, recently graduated the third cohort of its eight weeks intensive training on digital skills.
Head of Public Policy, West and Central Africa for Facebook, Adaora Ikenze, said Facebook believes in supporting Africa’s youth through programmes like Digify Pro that develop and provide young people with the tools they need to build the economy.
“We are proud of the graduates and admire the determination and drive they have shown throughout this programme and we are excited to see them kick-start their careers,” she said.
Speaking on the journey so far, Program Director, DigifyPro Nigeria, Mrs Florence Atunwa Olumodimu, said tackling the digital skills gap certainly requires industry support, as a programme that is largely hands-on and action-learning orientated, DigifyPro stands out from other digital skills and training programmes.
