HUMAN CAPITAL DEVELOPMENT
Poverty has many dimensions, limited employment opportunities contributes too. The reasons for unemployment is endless, applicants not having the right skills is also a factor.
Therefore, in line with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)- Eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, we launched an academy to help build Human capacity.
While we are constantly striving to meet Our Goal: To train 30,000 people in the field of IT by 2025, we are also dedicated in moulding people to become better innovators, work effectively or be self-employed
Our Academy focuses on 3 different levels
