Women Techsters Alumni: Fatima Ahmed (From A Chemist to a Woman in Tech)


I got to know about the NWT program through my friend, who went through the program. I didn’t have any idea about programming or building websites before the training. I was able to learn all these within the period of the program; it was fascinating to be able to build a website on my own. I got on an internship with TechSavvy, an opportunity provided by Tech4Dev to help improve my skills. The most exciting part of my experience is that I got a chance to be a part of the Microsoft Leap Engineering Program. I cannot tell my story without Women Techsters. It was through the program, I got my Internship opportunity and into the Microsoft Program.

WT-GIZ Cohort 3

I initially thought tech was for majorly men, engineers, and computer scientists; it was during my training with WT that I changed that mindset. I learned a lot during the training; I especially thank my tutors; they did a lot. From this training, I recently got an opportunity to be among the 1st cohort of the Microsoft Leap Apprenticeship program, and I see myself taking leaps from there.

I got to know about Tech4Dev when I was the student union vice president of FUTA, as a person who loved tech and was looking for opportunities to learn I quickly grabbed it. I joined the Game Development class and it was the best decision have made, after the training, I specialized in building AR and VR applications, as a result, our startup GESAL won the future hack e-Education organized by NITDA and we also recently got into Facebook accelerator program.

Here is my feedback on the fantastic learning experience I got at the Nigerian Women Techsters program. My experience was incredible; being a novice coming in to learn how to code, I was able to comprehend all the lessons and apply them to create projects. The training was interactive, and the tutors were ready to train and pour their all. It was life-changing. Thank you for the opportunity.

I decided to join the training because my friends told me how they learned to code in a few weeks, coming here was excellent; all my expectations were met. It was awesome; the tutors were willing to help and explain everything to us. I am now able to build a website and write codes, so excited. Thanks to Tech4Dev.

I stumbled on the flyer online, and I was surprised when I was selected to go through the training. I have always wanted to learn to program; Thankfully NWT came up, and it was terrific, I learned a lot, the classes were explanatory, and I have been able to do some projects all by myself.

Rashidat Olanike

It was from the career path at GIZ that I got into the program; the two weeks boot camp has helped me decide on which area to further in my career. It was quite encouraging and helpful. I was able to continue my learning online, and I also got materials from our trainer. Currently, I am an assistant trainer with Women Techsters; I didn't expect to be here. I'm especially grateful to Tech4dev, they trained me and have also provided me a job.

WT-GIZ beneficiary cohort 1

The program took me out of my comfort zone, but 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 I also made new friends.

Abimbola Hassan

I got the advert from social media, and I was screened and then got a mail to join. The classes were fun, and I like that they broke everything step by step for everyone to understand, we were all carried along. I learned a lot about web design and creative thinking.

Dimeji Ajayi Damilola

WT-GIZ cohort 3

Code4Impact was a program that encouraged me to take up the computer programming path. We were introduced to things I had no idea of like NFCs, Proximity Sensors, Resistors, LEDs. We learned how to write codes for them and make them work. I am grateful to the organizers of this program and all our tutors.

Maria Orevaogene

C4i Participant

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.
