The Power Learn Project has said that digital education will solve the challenges of youth unemployment and underemployment in Nigeria.
A statement from the company explained that its goal was to train one million software developers across the continent by 2027.
He added that PLP, in partnership with Adanian Labs Nigeria and Job Red, would launch the program at the Oriental Hotel on November 18, 2022, saying Nigeria was the 5th country to launch the #1MillionDevs4Africa programme.
The Chief Growth and Operations Officer of the Power Learn Project, Mumbi Ndung’u, said the aim of the project was to drive transformative change for young people in Nigeria and Africa through technology skills.
“The program will offer online junior software development training, consisting of curated programming languages, as well as a soft skills component, with our health partner AfyaRekod on employability, entrepreneurship and their mental well-being, so that students can not only gain entry-level smart tech jobs but to also be healthy members of the community.
“PLP aims to train 1,500 software developers in Nigeria in 16 weeks,” he said.
