Tech Diversity in Nigeria 2022 (TDN22)
Nigeria is the most significant economic and most populous country in Africa. Nigeria is also considered home to Aliko Dangote, the richest man in Africa.
Dangote's business interests in agriculture, banking, cement, manufacturing, salt and sugar have earned his net worth of more than $20 billion.
Despite the above, we still face insecurity, Inadequate health facilities and poverty, among others.
The Big Unemployment Problem in Nigeria
The increasing unemployment rate is the most unbearable situation in Nigeria and other African countries.
A current report on the Nigerian Bureau of Statistics website recorded the youth unemployment rate at 33% of about 210.87 million.
Mathematically 66.587 million are currently idle without a job; even with these, there's still a long queue at jamb centres, with more than 500,000 graduates from the universities annually to face off unavailable jobs.
In addition to individual interest, these are two factors driving many people into learning digital skills, coding or programming, especially to explore its many possibilities.
But unfortunately, the educational system can still not provide a solution for this.
Tech Diversity in Nigeria by InstinctHub
Since the adoption of technology, there has been an increase in young people hoping to integrate into the global tech ecosystem.
Where at InstinctHub, we launched Student Achievement Gap Initiative (SAGI) to help us identify the issues hindering students from obtaining the right digital skills and accessing economic opportunities while still in school.
We're building an ecosystem where young youth can access technology skills.
We believe with technology skills, and we can reformulate equality, so everyone has the right to pursue their purpose and goals.
Last year we launched a program tagged Tech Diversity In Nigeria for Nigerians!
Our mission is to train 100,000 students each year and equip them with employable technology skills before they graduate through personalised learning solutions.
We commenced with a test run in 2021. We trained over 300 students from two Nigerian universities (Bowen and Bayero University). The top 7 outstanding students get a directly paid internship from Sterling Bank.
