Ghana’s network of high-impact social entrepreneurs and hubs, Social Enterprise Ghana, has signed an Agreement with Moringa School and Brighter Investment to promote training in digital skills amongst the youth that leads to impactful job creation.
This partnership will see Social Enterprise Ghana using the spaces provided by its 26 regional hubs and Enterprise Support Organizations to facilitate the training of young people in digital skills, starting with a five-month boot camp in Software Engineering. Moringa School, a multi-disciplinary learning accelerator committed to closing the skills gap in Africa’s job market by providing transformative tech-based learning will provide the curriculum and other training essentials while Brighter Investment, Ghana’s foremost income sharing education financing social enterprise, will provide educational loans to those who choose to enroll in these programs.
According to Edwin Zu-Cudjoe, CEO of Social Enterprise Ghana, “Ghana Government’s ambition to promote digitalization requires skills to advance the digital economy and our collaboration with Moringa School and Brighter Investment will unlock talents to leapfrog Ghana’s digital space for shared prosperity and include the marginalized and vulnerable communities in this space necessary for sustainable economic development.”
Snehar Shah, the CEO of Moringa School says, “Following our International Expansion Strategy, Moringa was excited to launch our first cohort of Software Engineering classes in Ghana during the first Quarter of 2022. We are keen to build on this partnership to train many more students using the leading US boot camp’s curriculum from Flatiron School. Social Enterprise Ghana does not only bring its training facilities but also its network to both attract the youth to train with Moringa and help channel them into jobs with Employer partners. In line with our vision of a world in which anyone can create their future, we welcome the support of Brighter Investment to make our training accessible to all youth regardless of their financial background.”
Mr Richard Adarkwah of Brighter Investment shared, “ Education should be seen as an intentional investment not just as a charity for social good. When education is seen as an investment, that is when everyone will commit their all to ensure it’s better for the development of our nation.”
