iValley Ghana in partnership with the Ghana Tech Lab, Soronko Academy and the Ministry of Communication and Digitalization organized a three-week Mobile Application Training (MAT) for 20 SHS and tertiary graduates in the Savannah region who are currently unemployed and are between the ages of 18 to 35.
The cultural and social roles of women as mothers, homemakers and careers restricts their ability and opportunity to survive in technology. This has contributed to having less women and females in the industry.
As such, the training was organized to help bridge the knowledge gap by giving these ladies basic tech skills in Mobile App Development which will prepare them for more advanced skills. This training dabbed the “National Female Pre-Tech Training Program” is aimed at training a total of 360 young females across the country.
iValley is an entrepreneurial development and innovation hub in Damongo, in the Savannah region and as part of their mission to promote technological innovations and sustainable entrepreneurial development, they selected and trained 20 females and helped them acquire digital skills to support and make impacts in their communities.
Nabeel Renzel, Hub Manager for iValley, said ‘’for us at iValley, it is not just about training these ladies, what next after that? It is also about giving them the opportunity to constantly learn and practice in order to become experts and build a career in tech. There are lots of opportunities for them to seize. They could become developers or UI and UX designers among other”.
