The group trained 43 Lagos youth in digital techniques

The United Way Greater Nigeria (UWGN), a non-governmental organization, has trained 43 young people in modern trades to fill the youth unemployment gap.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that UWGN Program Manager, Mr. Olayemi Fasakin, has appealed to the beneficiaries to take the training seriously, expressing hope that they will use the training to meet the growing demand in the field of digital technology.

Fasakin noted that the training titled: ‘Skills to Employment Program (STEP)’, is part of the organization’s charitable activities, aimed at improving the financial stability of individuals in different communities.

He said the UWGN initiative was committed to the health, education, and well-being of individuals to bring meaningful development to Nigerians and their communities.

According to him, the STEP program, which is aimed at beneficiaries between the ages of 18 and 30, has 24 women and 19 men who have graduated.

Fasakin said the three-month training, including a four-week training course, added that the participants were trained on modern business, web development, and more.

“A total of 27 of the conference participants were trained as digital advertisers, eight as webmasters, while the other eight as graphic designers.

“With training, I believe young people should be able to stand on their own and impact their knowledge on others,” he said.

Fasakin commended all the colleagues who have been involved in the success of the program for its social impact on the lives of young people.

According to him, the sponsors are Nerdy Eye, WAVE Academies, Educate Nigeria, The Workplace Center, JASS Academy, and Sweet Sensation.

Fasakin said UWGN will expand the next phase of the program to reach more young people, stressing that donors are being targeted for this.
