Group empowers youths with ICT skills
After an intensive eight-week digital marketing training in Abuja, another set of graduates of DigifyPro are set to embark on a three- month internship in digital and marketing firms in Nigeria, just as another 20 unemployed graduates were absorbed into the programme in Lagos.
The programme, a non-profit initiative by Digify Africa, and supported by Facebook in the last two years, have trained 20 Nigerian graduates between the ages of 20 and 30 years, who are not in full-time employment.
At the graduation ceremony of the fourth cohorts in Abuja, Programme Director, Mrs. Florence Olumodimu, said the programme was structured to equip Nigerian youths with hands-on skills, as well as, resources to help them build their digital skills and ensure they play an integral role in the new wave of digital transformation.
She said the initiative has produced 80 digital-skilled graduates, and is still training more graduates.
The DigifyPro graduates have been equipped to be solution providers to the digital community and society.
She said: “Ultimately, there is a shortage of digital skills globally. DigifyPro has identified this gap and has taken the initiative, 20 graduates at a time to tackle major problems, by putting processes in place that allow innovative youths with an insatiable thirst for knowledge to proffer solutions.”
