The popular Hausa blog www.mujallarmu.comin collaboration with Falcon Technology has began to train 10,000 northern Nigerian youths before the end of this year 2017. The two organizations are joining forces to see that northern youths are not left behind in terms of participation in ICT.
These youths will undergo a rigorous training on ICT skills that will make them community builders, employers of labor and in the process improve the economic condition of their immediate environment.
