Abuja Orphanage Benefits from CITAD’s Digital Literacy Training Initiative

In a commendable effort to bridge the digital divide, the Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD) trained 10 children from The Vine Heritage Orphanage Home (VHH) in Abuja on essential digital literacy skills, including basic computer operation.

Mrs. Yesmin Salako, CITAD’s Abuja Program Officer, highlighted the significance of the initiative. “These skills are crucial to bridge the digital divide between those who have access to technology and those who don’t,” she said.

Salako elaborated on the multifaceted benefits of the training. “Not only does it enhance learning experiences and increase access to information,” she explained, “but it also empowers children to express themselves and prepares them for the digital future as technology continues to evolve. This fosters social equity and inclusion, equipping them to thrive in our increasingly digital world.”

The management of The Vine Heritage Orphanage Home (VHH) in Abuja expresses their appreciation for CITAD’s initiative.

The training equips VHH’s children with valuable tools for their personal and academic development, preparing them for a future where digital fluency is essential.
