Abubakr, originally from Sudan, holds a Bachelor's degree in computer science and a diploma in social work. The Digital Inclusion Program in Amman, Jordan has linked him to the global freelance marketplace and taught him soft skills such as proposal writing, bid making strategies, and online client negotiation – all of which are vital to succeed in the growing market for online freelance talent.
Next month, Abubakr will be graduating along with the rest of his peers in our first ever Jordan DIP cohort. We are excited to see what he will accomplish! Abubakr’s responses have been lightly edited for clarity and accuracy
💻🙌 In February, Konexio and JRS hired two ICT trainers, Taban and Juma, to undergo our 8-week training-of-trainers (ToT) program and become the ICT instructors for our new DIP in the Kakuma Refugee Camp. Since then, Taban and Juma have been working diligently to master our Digital Inclusion Program (DIP) curricula, learning how to teach computer operating systems, excel formulas, professional client communication, and more! They have one week left of the ToT, after which they will be ready to teach their very own cohort of students. Let's hear from our new trainers!
