I initially thought tech was majorly for men, engineers, and computer scientists. It was during my Women Techsters training that I changed that mindset. With a read more button that leads to the full story on the blog.

The Nakise program helped me increase my knowledge in MS Word, Excel and also PowerPoint which has been a serious struggle for me. I can see this helping me to grow my business in the future because these skills are important. The world has gone digital and tech is the future. This was an opportunity for me to add to my knowledge and I loved how interactive the class was because, for me, learning is interaction. I’m thankful to have been a part of this class.

Abigail Dung

Nakise beneficiary

The week’s training has been enlightening, I have done ICT training before, and it was not like this. It was just the basics, and it was an eye-opener for me. I enjoyed the classes. The tutors were patient and explained well. We did a PowerPoint presentation, and I perfected my presentation skills within the training period. I want to say thank you to Tech4Dev, and I appreciate the opportunity.

Gladys Madueke

Nakise beneficiary

I heard about the Digital Skills for the Workplace program from a friend and the rest, as they say, is history. The training was quite challenging for me at first. I felt left out just because it's been almost 10 years since I did anything serious on a computer, but the facilitator was kind enough to consider us all. He was patient but firm, ensuring we all delivered on our tasks.

Looking back, it was a fantastic experience for me. I was rusty in anything relating to tech before the training, but I was dusted and polished, I was also given a solid foundation to build my tech dream. Within 8 weeks, I went through the design thinking process, User interphase, and User experience designs. It was an amazing ride, and the destination is sure looking good.

The Basic Digital Literacy for Northern Nigeria project was very impactful for me. I participated in the training because I wanted to gain knowledge that would make me digitally literate so as to help me fit into society and also become an entrepreneur with a computer center where I can train people and also earn from it.

Now, I can confidently use Microsoft Word and Excel, I can type and communicate online. I am so happy I got to be a part of this training. This training has helped me improve my computer skills and now I can find my way around a computer without stress. I am thankful to Tech4Dev and FCDO for this opportunity to improve on myself and potentially contribute positively to my community.

Basic Digital Literacy for Northern Nigeria beneficiary (Benue)

I found out about the ATC Digital Village Project via an Instagram post. I signed up for it, and I was excited when I was selected. The program took me out of my comfort zone, but it also helped me chart a new course. As a graduate of Human Physiology from the University of Ilorin, training people to become digital literate was not something I ever thought about, but engaging in this program made me learn new things and forge new relationships. I liked the excitement on my students' faces after every class. The joy that they were learning something they never thought they could do.

To ATC and Tech4Dev, thank you for giving me the platform to share knowledge with others, and thank you for the fantastic initiative of introducing digital literacy in the grassroots community.
