Ajegunle.org: Paradigm Initiative Nigeria activates 3-week Google Web Training for community youth

Ajegunle.org is an initiative of Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN), which connects young people with ICT enabled opportunities to create better livelihoods through its ICT, Entrepreneurship and Life skill training.

The project now reaches more young people in the community running morning and evening classes – about 40 students every cycle. The ICT classes for the 2014 C session focused on Microsoft Office Packages, design tools & the internet. An highlight of the ICT Training was the research the students had to carry out for their PowerPoint presentation class. Many of them admitted that it was the most challenging educational assignment they had ever done because they had to research, write creatively, work within a team and make presentations to their classmates, trainers and PIN staff.

The Entrepreneurship classes commenced with the Introduction to Entrepreneurship, and it was facilitated by industry experts. The students were trained on Marketing, Finance, Managing Risks, Staffing, Social Impact, Customer relations and Writing Business Plans.
