Dansyn Innovation Social Organization (ISO), a not-for-profit technology-driven youth-oriented organisation in the Upper East Region has trained 32 young individuals on digital skills. The 32 young men and women were trained on how to use digital skills and tools to promote and develop their businesses online.
Speaking to A1 News at the sidelines of the Upper East Regional Startup Summit, the Chief Executive Officer of Dansyn ISO, Daniel Nang said that after the 6 six-week training of the 32 young people there would be an incubation process to hone the skills of the teams that won. Some would be unto some internship programmes with organisations for 2 months with pay.
Mr. Nang Stated that, Dansyn ISO would still guide all trainees in order for them to be able to explore the skill as expected.
“We taught them how to be able to use digital technology to access or advertise their products online. That is why they are doing things like the creation of websites and other tools that are necessary to create awareness or to bring businesses online.”
“So they have been on this training for six weeks. Today is the crowing of the six weeks so today we are here for them to let us and the public know what they have learned for the six weeks period.”
“Apart from the fact that, we are giving them jobs at those places as a platform for them to learn something. Employers are always looking for experience before they employ so that would be an experience for the other group.”
The digital skills training by Dansyn ISO for these 32 young individuals was sponsored by Ghana Tech Lab.
They were 10 startups in all, and at the end of the contest, a startup by the name QuickAid emerged the winner.
QuickAid startup is focused on bringing all skilled workers together on their web app to make it for those who seek such services.
