Vodacom Business Nigeria’s “power to you” will be remembered by students from the Computer craft trade of the Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba, Lagos as they were taken through the technology and the benefits of cloud computing.
They invite a number of primary, secondary and tertiary institutions to its facility, enabling hundreds of Nigerian students to benefit from complementing their science, computer, engineering and electrical electronics studies with field trips to the company’s facility.
“We are excited that our students were given access to Vodacom’s facility and its excellent educational sessions,” said the Principal M.A Nwankwo. “Getting children interested in ICT is very important for our school and coming to an enterprise service provider and learning about ICT first-hand, helps students apply classroom learning to real-life situations and opens opportunities for future careers in ICT for them.”
Guy Clarke, Managing Director Vodacom Business Nigeria said: “We’re pleased and proud to host the students of FSTC Yaba in our facility. It is an opportunity that so clearly supports our commitment to youth empowerment through ICT education. We believe that ICT can address some of the country’s most pressing challenges in Education. There is no better way to drive this change than exposing the youth to the technical, business and leadership skills required for ICT innovations.”
It would be recalled that Vodacom opened its doors to primary, secondary and tertiary institutions last year including the students of Grace Schools and Benue State University, on its power to you project aimed at giving the student first-hand experience of ICT at work.
