2475 women across 12 states in Nigeria.
The Nigerian Women Techsters was created to bridge the digital knowledge divide between men and women by training 2,400 women in underserved communities across Nigeria, resulting in increased access to more coding talent, capable of improving quality of work within organizations and eventually, promoting economic growth and development in Nigeria and across the African continent.
NWT trained 2,400 young women between the ages of 18 – 40 across Nigeria.
The initiative was delivered through intensive training by experienced facilitators, and it focused on three significant tracks, namely:
- Web and Mobile Application Development
- Games Development
- Embedded Systems
Each of these tracks provided adequate learning opportunities for participants to develop knowledge and build capacity which translated their experiences into relevant skills and competencies in the workplace and business ideas worthy of incubating into competitive start-ups.
