A partnership has been formed between Google and the Kaduna state government to equip 5,000 women and young girls with skills in fields such as data science, artificial intelligence, and the practical application of digital technologies for business.

In an official statement provided on Monday by Muhammad Lawal Shehu, spokesperson for the governor of Kaduna state, this endeavor is part of a larger initiative backed by Google that aims to provide valuable skills to an additional 20,000 women and youth across Nigeria.

The program, known as Arewa Tech4 Ladies, will be established to ensure the successful execution of this endeavor within four semi-urban and rural communities within Kaduna state.

To guarantee the efficient implementation of this program, Governor Uba Sani has appointed a committee of five individuals. Patience Fakai, the commissioner for business innovation and technology, will lead the committee, while other members include advisors specializing in investment, new media, representation from Kaduna tech, and an ICT advisor.

Olumide Balogun, the Director for West Africa at Google, expressed that Nigeria’s technological future depends on unlocking the potential of every individual, regardless of gender. He emphasized that the collaboration with Kaduna state government demonstrates a strong belief in the transformative capabilities of women in technology, supported by Google.org.
