This is a significant step towards promoting tech inclusivity in the northern part of Nigeria namely Arewa Tech4Ladies.

By equipping 20,000 more women and young people in Nigeria with 21st-century skills, this initiative, which is a part of a larger skills development program supported by Google.org, hopes to position (Arewa Tech4Ladies) for opportunities in the digital and creative industries.

“Inclusion in technology is not just about social equity; it’s about economic progress,” said Kaduna State Governor Uba Sani. By educating and equipping our women (Arewa Tech4Ladies) with digital skills, we’re eradicating gender stereotypes and paving the way for rapid economic development.

This collaboration with Google demonstrates our dedication to utilizing our women’s enormous potential for the socioeconomic transformation of Kaduna State and Nigeria as a whole.

In order to promote economic growth, the Kaduna State Government has consistently emphasized the value of utilizing technology. The involvement of women in technology is essential to this vision. That is why the initiative (Arewa Tech4Ladies) came about.

The state seeks to empower this group in recognition of their potential to make significant contributions to the digital economy and the larger socioeconomic environment by offering targeted tech training and ensuring accessibility.

Data Science Nigeria, which will create Arewa Tech4Ladies, will run the program.

By providing specialized women-focused knowledge acquisition, mentorship, and employment services support facilities, this initiative is designed to serve four important semi-urban and rural communities in Kaduna State.

The future of technology in Nigeria depends on maximizing the potential of every person, regardless of gender, said Olumide Balogun, Google Director for West Africa. Our partnership with the Kaduna State Government is evidence of our unwavering faith in the ability of women in tech to transform industries. We’re committed to fostering a more inclusive digital environment with Google.org’s help, making sure that each trained woman (Arewa Tech4Ladies) serves as a catalyst for change in the tech industry.

This partnership demonstrates both parties’ commitment to advancing diversity in the tech sector and, ultimately, enhancing Nigeria’s economic livelihoods through the digital economy.
