MTN Ghana Support Girls in ICT Initiative With Ghc 10 Million

The Ministry of Communications and Digitisation has received a GHC 10 million support from telecommunications company, MTN Ghana. This support, according to the Chief Corporate Services Officer, Mr. Samuel Koranteng, is to help grow female participation in the IT industry as part of the company’s 25th Anniversary.  Receiving the support, the Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful noted how men have dominated the technology industry hence the need to bridge the gap. 

According to her, there are untapped opportunities in the Information Technology industry and Ghana needs to prepare its human resources to embrace such.  Mrs. Ekuful recounted her conviction to scale up the Girls in ICT initiative but for financing barriers, such remains a dream.  She, therefore, thanked MTN GHANA for favorably considering the ministry’s request and pledged to utilise the support for which it was given.  Deputy Minister for the ministry, Ama Pomaa Boateng, requested more job openings in the company for the Ghanaian Youth. 

The Mobile Network giants is celebrating 25 years of existence and has lined series of activities to mark the anniversary. Earlier today, the company held its Bright Conversation Series with celebrated Veteran Journalist and lecturer, Professor Kwame Karikari as distinguished speaker. Participants were mainly journalists drawn from all over the country and the theme for the event was: Promoting professionalism in the era of social media and citizen journalism.
