The North East Development Commission (NEDC) a few years ago rolled out different training programmes for residents within the six states that fall within the geo-political zone. Today, it has trained about 3,000 in ICT alone over the period of two years.
One of the beneficiaries of the NEDC said the ICT training has helped in expanding her business.
“The NEDC ICT Resource Training program has been of immense help to me; I’ve been privileged to acquire new skills that would without a doubt enhance my Henna business. With the skills that I have acquired, I intend to make my personal Henna templates and stickers to help me both save time and standardize my art,” Maryam Yusuf Jalo, one of the 2020 Batch 1 beneficiaries revealed.
So, how you can be part of the programme and use the knowledge to expand your business?
