The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has issued a notification on the opening of its portal for the capacity building program for persons with disability (PWD) to promote the Digital Inclusion Policy of NITDA.
NITDA invites Nigerians from the South-South region who have one form of disability or the other to apply for a 5-day training program on digital skills and entrepreneurship.
The program is the combination of execution of two initiatives from the seven NITDA’s Strategic RoadMap and Action Plan (SRAP) 2021-2024, which are Digital Transformation and Digital Literacy and Skills.
Digital Transformation enables the facilitation of digital inclusion programs for people with disabilities (PWDs) and other digitally excluded people to increase digitisation and digitalisation across both public and private sectors.
The two pillars promote the creation of capacity building schemes for digital entrepreneurship.
The capacity building program would take place in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. The interested participant should indicate by filling the application form on the NITDA website HERE.
The registration of PWDs by NITDA commenced at 10 am on Tuesday 11th January 2022 and will close by midnight on Tuesday 18th January 2022.
