Computer Training in Office Applications Helps Smiling, Young Adult Secure Job

Warm greetings

Here's a progress update from the field from a smiling young man called Abdul that is sure to warm your heart. 

Develop Africa in partnership with AID SL offered a month of computer training in office applications that helped Abdul transition from computer illiteracy to literacy. The training made a smiling Abdul "well equipped". Consequently, he explains, he has obtained a job offer and will start work in 2 weeks.

Thank you donors for helping to provide the essential job-skills training he needed. The training provided the needed computer literacy skills and opened up a world of opportunity.  Here again - Education, was a game-changer and an enabler.

One of our other projects here on GlobalGiving that similarly focuses on computer training is taking part in a special challenge.  The project focuses on providing enhanced educational opportunities to girls through a computer lab at an all-girls school.  We would be so grateful if you could help us win this challenge by making a donation here.

Thanks for your support and best wishes.
