Ho: 20 children receive entrepreneurial and ICT training

The children, drawn from basic schools in the municipality, were trained in graphic and web design, computer programming, business management in entrepreneurship, customer service, strategic business development, value proposition and leadership

Twenty children in the Ho Municipality of the Volta Region have received three months of intensive training in entrepreneurship and information and communications technology (ICT).

The children, drawn from basic schools in the municipality, were trained in graphic and web design, computer programming, entrepreneurship in business management, customer service, strategic business development, value proposition and leadership.

Forty adults also received the same training. All the trainees graduated on Saturday 11 February 2023 in Ho.

The training was organised by Genius IT, a non-profit organisation based in Ho, with support from the Volta regional directorate of the National Youth Authority (NYA).

Speaking to reporters after the graduation ceremony, the regional director of NYA, Yao Semorde, said Genius IT’s initiative is in line with what NYA “sees as a need to give young people the requisite skills especially in terms of IT”.

He added that in an effort to combat youth unemployment, the directorate is set to provide vocational skills training to 56 young people (28 youths each from Hohoe and South Tongu Districts) before the end of the first quarter of 2023.

The founder and chief executive officer of Genius IT, Desmond Kitsi, said the training complements the government’s effort in the implementation of education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

He said that his focus on the youth of Volta Region is to help them to acquire relevant skills to “stand up and also do something that can go on to the global market”.
