Mr Johnson Anyiam, a lawyer in South Africa, is partnering with a member of the Imo House of Assembly, Mr Ebonine Ozioma, to train 12 youths on Coding and digital education.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that the youths are from Ozioma’s Njaba Constituency.

NAN also reports that the digital skill education will be on GetBundi Education Technology platform, a hybrid digital skills education platform for youths across Africa.

A statement by Mrs Juliet Ijei, the course coordinator for GetBundi, indicated that the training is on Coding, a programming language, and will last for six months with online live classes and a masterclass every month from industry experts.

“We handhold our students and facilitate their learning process all along their curriculum with monthly performance-based tests that allow students to take their theoretical understanding which is knowledge, and turn it into the practical application, which is skill.

“Our curriculum is designed to make our students job ready. The training cost is N300,000 per trainee,” Ijei said.

Anyiam, a principal partner at Anyiam Attorneys Inc, Sandton, South Africa, emphasised that acquiring digital skills is crucial for Nigerian youths in today’s world “as it enhances employability, fosters innovation and promotes economic development”.

He further pledged to continue to support the youths in Njaba Local Government Area,  to acquire skills needed to make them instantly employable.

GetBundi founder Osita Oparaugo, while thanking Anyiam and Ebonine for their support to the youths, declared that Nigerian youths were industrious.

“We believe that Nigerian youths possess the ability and creativity to lead the African digital transformation if given the best chances to learn.

“That is why we developed GetBundi platform and crafted the courses to help them learn and commercialise innovation.

“We are sure this is a life changing opportunity for the beneficiaries. We want more Nigerians to emulate Anyiam and support the youths in their local communities and states.

“Youth empowerment should not be left for the government alone,” he said.

GetBundi is a hybrid digital skills education institution for African youths.

It is an online Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education platform for post-primary schools delivering high-quality, engaging and accessible education content from proficient educationalists and industry experts across the world.

GetBundi College of Technology is approved as a tertiary institution by the Federal Ministry of Education and the National Board for Technical Education. (NAN)(www.nannews.ng)
