Digify reaffirms commitment to engaging unemployed graduates
Digifypro Nigeria, a not-for-profit initiative, facilitated by Digify Africa (a digital skills academy based in South Africa) and supported by Facebook, is helping unemployed graduate secure fulltime employment.
The initiative, which saw the training of 20 trainees for another eight-week intensive digital skills bootcamp, last week, welcomed its third set, by equipping young graduates between the ages of 20 and 30 in Nigeria with job-ready digital skills.
Speaking at the launch of the DigifyPro Nigeria Cohort 3.0 in Lagos, Programme Director, Florence Olumodimu, said the training would expose participants to job readiness skills; ensure participants thrive in workplace and offer value to their potential employers.
She added that feedback from previous graduates had been amazing stories of transformation and personal growth.“Out of the 40 people that passed through our two Cohorts, over 80 percent are in full time employment, as a result of DigifyPro initiative and the skills they acquired on the programme. Four of the graduates from Cohort 2.0 won the AAAN YoungLAIFers Award in December 2018, coming first and second place respectively,” she said.
