This program targets the first cohort of 500 young individuals for a 90-day intensive tech bootcamp.

In his words, Primate Ndukuba stated “Everyone of us knows that one of the thriving and growing economies throughout the world is the digital economy, therefore between this year and our next conference, we are going to pay attention to ICT. We shall be training 5,000 young people and releasing them into the digital economy to occupy cyberspace for Christ and the kingdom of God.”

The Primate added that this initiative is coming at the right time when the digital space is being occupied and most young people are into it for bad reasons. We will train young people who are believers and release them to occupy that space for God transforming it for good.
