Online Programming Learning
Selected Company: DIVE INTO CODE Corp.
Challenges In Benin, there is a shortage of IT human resources, and there is a need to improve the IT literacy of government officials and citizens, as well as to train application development engineers. IT human resources development is also important for promoting e-government and achieving the government's goal of becoming a digital services platform in the West Africa.
Solution Programming courses on IT skills required for web and AI development will be provided to Benin students on an online learning platform. In addition, internship opportunities at local companies and other organizations will be provided to support employment and entrepreneurship, thereby contributing to the development of IT human resources to promote digitalization in Benin.
