Women’s Haven Africa in partnership with Ghana Tech Lab on the Pathway to Sustainable Employment – (PASE) Project organizes a Consultative Stakeholders Meeting on the theme: The role of Digital Media in Transforming the local economy for Job Creation and Economic Development.
Stakeholders at the meeting highlighted the skills gab, challenges, opportunities, strategies and policies for transforming the local economy to achieve sustainable development through digital skills and entrepreneurship and prepare a policy document that would feed into the development of a well-structured and informed curriculum of our next digital skills training and business incubation program.
Mildred Opoku Ware, Hub Manager, Women’s Haven Africa, in an interview stressed that, the aim is to train and equip young women in Kumasi with digital and enterpreneurial skills for them to create their own businesses and also employ others to reduce unemployment in Ghana.
She added that, prior to the Consultative Stakeholder Meeting, an ecosystem mapping exercise was embarked in Kumasi North to profile local stakeholders and key industry players to identify challenges and solutions with regards to digital media and technology.
Mildred mentioned that, we are currently receiving applications for the 6 months National Digital Media Training Program on the Base Innovation Program where young women would be trained in Digital Marketing, Creative Writing and Blogging, Photography, Videography, Graphic Design, and Sound Design for free and applications are expected to close on Sunday, 25th April, 2021.
