NCWD in collaboration with UN Women and Intel Organise training for Women on ICT and Entrepreneurship Training

By Raji Hussein Olaniyi, Abuja Sept. 16, 2015 (NAN)

The National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) in collaboration with UN Women and Intel Corporation had on Friday organised a training session on ICT and entrepreneurship for women empowerment.

The programme tagged “training the trainers” which attracted women from different organisations across the country was organised to empower women in the area of technology and Entrepreneurship.

Lady Onyeka Onwenu, Director General National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) said that the training is about skills and empowering the woman to make her more economically independent.

She said as women are considered to be the pillar of the house hence the need to empower them.

She said, in a world of huge opportunities where the fast moving ICT is the backbone of every business women should not be left behind.

“in this programme, we have trainers who are here to be trained in technology and entrepreneurship skills, in order to further train other women when they get back to their base”, she said. 

Onwenu said that the objective of the programme is to increase the utilisation of digital services and e-services and also to advance women’s economic empowerment.

She further said that the programme is to enhance the digital literacy and the use of ICTs among women and girls to promote their business.

She however said that the programme that started on Monday, Sept. 14 2015 will take the participants through different topics.

“During the one week programme, participants will be taken through different topics including: the role of ICT in business, internet usage for business, social media for business web design and hosting and online marketing”.

Onwenu pointed out that accommodation, meals and tuitions are fully paid for by sponsors and not only that, all the participants will go home with a sum of 20 000 naira each.

In addition, Onwenu said that the participants were invited from organisations across Nigeria who are interested in training other women on using technology and other social media platforms in order to improve their businesses.

She however appreciated those who partner with NCWD, the UN Women, Intel Corporation and all other organisations involved in the training for their contributions towards the programme. 

In her remarks, Dr. Grace Ongile, UN Women Representative to Nigeria and Ecowas gives kudos to Intel Corporation for conceiving and funding such a great idea which aimed at bridging the gap between men and women in the technological area. 

She further said that the theme of the workshop Technology and Entrepreneurship for women in Nigeria are appropriate consi8dering their objectives for the programme.

Ongile said that the UN Women is currently collaborating with Intel Corporation in three countries in Africa and they are Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa.

Furthermore, the collaboration deals with increasing the utilisation of digital services and e-services to advance women’s economic empowerment.

In addition, the collaboration was to enhance literacy and use of ICTs among young women and girls and informing efforts to engender national policies on ICT, Ongile said.

She however pointed out that the objectives are based on the current gender gap.

Based on the data published by the International Telecommunications (ITU), as at 2013, the number of women internet users was estimated at 1.3 billion accounting for 37 percents of women worldwide, she said.

Dr. Ongile also said that the UN Women has entered a strategic partnership with Intel Corporation on a programme tagged “Intel, She will Connect” which seeks to reduce the digital gender gap through a combination of digital literacy training.

Moreover, the UN Women looks to seeing young women whose capacities have been built to access ICTs and to avail themselves with opportunities available within the public and private sectors in Nigeria.

The permanent Secretary Federal Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development represented by John Olusoji, Acting Director in the Ministry said that the project will serve as a means for more women and girls to be equipped with computer knowledge.

He further said that ICT provides the main tool to reduce discrimination and to empower women for all types of activities, since information and capacity to communicate and to be involved in decision-making are the basic pillars of empowerment.

Oyemomi said that the effort by the UN Women in collaborating with the NCWD to promote women and girls’ access to ICT and internet provides a useful framework mainstreaming gender into the process of building and inclusive society and knowledge based economy.

He however said that the Federal Government through the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development has over the years supported a lot of women to be trained in ICT by NCWD.

ASUU Strike Update: NANS gives FG, ASUU Ultimatum

ASUU Strike Update: NANS gives FG, ASUU Ultimatum. 

THE National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, has given the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU,  December 31 deadline to resolve their differences and call off the ongoing strike, vowing that it would mobilize members to disrupt the 2019 general elections if both sides remained adamant after expiration of the deadline.

The body also vowed that unlike in previous elections were politicians used its members for elections for their ulterior motives,the forthcoming elections will see a different students who are not ready to be used anymore. 

Addressing the media in Abuja, NANS Zone A Coordinator, Umar Faruk Lawal, regretted that after several meetings, both government and ASUU were yet to reach agreement with a view to calling off the ongoing strike.

To this end,he warned:” Today, we want to announce to the federal government, the ASUU and to the whole world that very soon,we are coming out in full force. It’s not a threat to the government neither is it a threat to ASUU, we are not afraid of anybody that wants to jeopardize the future of the Nigerian students or the Nigerian masses. We are coming out and we are going to hold the entire nation stagnant. By that time, we will shut down airports and major roads across Nigeria

“We are warning the federal government and not appealing to them because it’s our right. Most of our leaders,from the president to the permanent secretaries went to school free of charge but some of us go to do bricklayer work to come and pay our school fees while some hang around in campuses to do one or two printing work to pay their fees. 

“The greatest surprise to us is that some people are celebrating that the federal government is doing well in education,it is not doing well at all. “I want this message to reach the table of the president that 2019 is around the corner. All the PVCs of the Nigerian students are not meant for the government that is not taking good care of our educational sector. “If they don’t call off this strike before the end of December 31,2018,we as NANS are going to resolve it for them,”he said.
