Centre partners UN women to train organisations on ICT


Abuja – The National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) on Tuesday said it was partnering with UN women to train organisations in developing businesses through social media platform.
Ms Onyeka Onwenu, the Director-General of the centre, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that the world was fast becoming a global village that required digitalisation of businesses.
Onwenu said that the organisations involved in the training were expected to step down the ICT training to credible non-governmental organisations.
The Director, Information Technology of the centre, Mr Manny Emecheta, said 25 participants would be trained under the programme.
“In collaboration with UN women, the centre will in Sept. 14 convene participants to teach them on using social media platform to develop their businesses.
“It is going to be technology and entrepreneurship for women and girls in Nigeria under the UN women project promoting women and girls access to ICT and internet.
“We are going to train 25 organisations like the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), National Directorate of Employment (NDE),” Emecheta said.
He said the centre was developing “No woman left out’’ project to impact on women and girls who lack the basic knowledge of ICT.
Emecheta said that the programme was designed to avail women and girls the platform to access vocational skill programmes available in the centre per time.

“No woman left out is to impact on women and girls in basic entrepreneurship and skills, on business plans, which without ICT currently on progress can be made,” he said.
The director said that women could access the programmes of the centre which would come in form of phone applications.
He, however, stated that the platform was still undergoing some development to ensure that it functions perfectly when it comes on board. (NAN)
