Pa’ba in Techpreneurship is a HOPin Academy program supported by DTC, GIZ Ghana. This initiative was launched 2 years ago and has since seen over 200 rural women equipped with various digital skills.
The main objective this year was to support a total of 200 young females within the Northern region with marketable skills for employment and exposure to digital skills, social innovation, and entrepreneurship which will promote a vibrant youth workforce and sustainable economic growth. Tamale, Walewale and Nalerigu were selected for this year’s training.
The level of female participation in these kinds of training has been appalling in Northern Ghana, and as one of the key advocates for gender equality and inclusion, HOPin Academy sees this the best way to go.
PIT 2022 which started June covered topics on Introduction to Data Analysis to participants in Tamale, and Graphic design in Walewale and Nalerigu. These topics were selected after carrying out a needs assessment in the selected locations. Trainings were led by experts in these fields to maximise impact. Beneficiaries are expected to enrich their employability through these skills and stimulate their interest for further learning in the digital world.
The public benefit of the enhanced provision of digital skills training for members of rural and peri-urban communities to support their skill set and level of employability sustainability.
