Today, Gbenga Hashim Foundation received the cheering news that our own Ms.Excellence Anurika Joshua,founder at Techy Train Incubator has been selected by the Public Affairs Section oftheU.S. Consulate General Lagos to be among the 250 participants for the 2021 Academyfor Women Entrepreneurs (AWE).
AWE is a U.S. Government initiative that supports women entrepreneurs around the world.
Excellence, an online media consultant, multiple award winner and technology enthusiast, is dedicated to Gbenga Hashim Foundation’s project of empowering the Nigerian Youth with basic digital skills.
She is on a mission to empower 5000 young people before 2023 and we would be providing as much support as we can.
The Gbenga Hashim Foundation is partnering with the Techy Train Incubator to accomplish the Cyber Naija project where we would empower 1000 youths across the country with digital skills before 2023. So far, in the last 3 months, we have trained 205.
A few years ago, we referred to technology as the key skill for the future; today, technology is the skill for now.
Just as literacy and numeracy are important to succeed or thrive globally today, basic digital skills are equally important.
When the youth are empowered, they have the skills, critical awareness, and opportunities to positively impact their own lives and the lives of other individuals, organizations, and communities.
Empowering the youth is empowering the future.
