The Digital Transformation Centres (DTC) Initiative was launched in September 2019 by ITU in partnership with Cisco with the objective of supporting countries to strengthen digital capacities of citizens, particularly in the underserved communities.
Both Bekwai and Kokofu CICs being part of the selected DTCs become part of a global network of institutions to accelerate the uptake of digital technologies among citizens and boost the capacity of young entrepreneurs and SMEs to succeed in the digital economy.
At both ICT Centers, the DCE expressed his appreciation to the participants particularly the market women and the marginalized individuals for defying the odds to fully partake in the training.
He encouraged them to continuously apply the digital skills given them in all their endeavours in order to participate in the world digital economy and further encouraged them to continuously patronize the services of the ICT Centers for their intended purposes to be achieved.
Mr. Kyei Baffour also presented certificates to participants on their completion of the courses taught.
