A comprehensive ICT program has been launched by ATRUD’s Training and Empowerment department within the framework of its overall mission which is to provide sustainable skills with which underprivileged persons can change their lives for the better without relying solely on external help. The program is conceived, designed and manned by an ICT team of trainers led by Mr. Okah Nnane Nguite under the supervision of ATRUD’s Coordinator for Cameroon Mr. E. L Tabot. After receiving approval from ATRUD’s top management in the first week of January 2020, the program is set to begin on Monday 20th January 2020 at 9AM at the head office of ATRUD located behind Bepanda Casmando, Douala.
Courses will be taught in two levels depending on the needs of the trainees from Mondays to Fridays with special classes on Saturdays. Morning sessions will be held from 9:00 to 11:00 while evening sessions will begin at 6:00 and end at 9:00. Since the program will bring together both kids and adults, groups will be formed accordingly so basic as well as advanced learners can all achieve their learning goals without problems.
Registration is currently going on and would-be trainees are requested to get in touch with ATRUD’s office in Douala for inquiries and registration formalities.
The Association for Training and Rural Development (ATRUD) has been helping internally displaced persons, refugees and communities in need, thanks to generous donations from partner organizations, companies, individuals and groups. This ICT program is expected to be the first of many more upcoming training programs the association intends to run.
ATRUD believes that the best way to help the needy is to empower them.
