unemploymentINLINE with its resolve to tackle unemployment, a non-profit organisation, A3 Foundation, has flagged off a programme to train 1000 unemployed youths on Information Communication Technology (ICT).

Founder/Chief Executive Officer of the foundation, Dr. Aisha Audu-Emeje, disclosed this at the official launch of A3 foundation-Rockefeller Digital Jobs Africa pilot scheme in Abuja.

The Former First Lady of Kogi State explained that the training would go a long way in helping disadvantaged youth in the society by taking them off the streets and putting their individual skills to good use.

She said: “Training of these youths would not only enable youth take their rightful place, but would create an environment where the youth can in turn make meaningful impact in the society at large. A thousand youth trained today could translate to a thousand youth off the street”.
She noted that A3 Foundation has always been committed to the plight of the youth and has also sought newer ways to address the rising unemployment rate.

The former Kogi first lady said: “It is no surprise that we have embarked on this training with support from the Rockefeller Foundation to further assist high potential but disadvantaged youth in the society in taking their rightful place in the society.”
