Leading global digital company Microsoft has revealed that its #DigitalforAllChallenge will equip men and women between the ages of 16 and 45 years with digital skills, to enable them to have equal access to technology-centric economic opportunities.

The drive is part of the company’s sub-program under its Emerging Market Model Initiative, implemented in Nigeria by the Technology for Social Change and Development Initiative (Tech4Dev).

The programme is a free digital skilling programme and competition designed to drive digital literacy of youth across Nigeria and spur interest in acquiring digital skills and certifications via onsite and online platforms.

The Emerging Market Model Initiative (EMMI) is a multi-year, multi-stakeholder, private-public-non-profit partnership designed to build the capacity of key government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to offer sustainable, scalable reskilling and employment services aligned to the local labour markets.

The #DigitalforAllChallenge competition was categorised into basic and intermediate level skills training delivered over a four-month learning period, followed by a month-long (state, regional and national) competition phase. Through the challenge over 17,000 young people have successfully been upskilled.

A statement from the company said beneficiaries who complete all the competition’s requirements stand the chance to compete to win cash and other consolation prizes t the grand finale scheduled for Frasier Suites, Abuja, on a yet-to-be-announced date.
