With the number of youth making up more than half of Nigeria’s population, it is increasingly important to provide them with digital literacy skills that they need to be competitive in today’s world. The Federal Government of Nigeria recognizes this skill gap and aims for 95% digital literacy by 2021.
To achieve this goal Ai Multimedia has been selected as one of the training partners in the LSETF-USADF Employability project. Based in Lagos, AI Multimedia Academy is a vocational training center dedicated to training passionate individuals in digital skills and specializes in the media and creative sector.
