Meet Asmaa and Andro, two students who just finished their last class in our Jordan Digital Inclusion Program!
Asmaa and Andro are students in our first DIP Jordan Cohort. After 6 months of client negotiation role play, pivot tables, mass mailing practice, and more, these students will walk the stage and receive their Konexio Digital Inclusion Program certification. No more excel sheets and powerpoint presentations – at least in our classroom, anyways!
The students have done an excellent job throughout the semester,” says Rua, one of our ICT trainers in Jordan. “They are truly looking forward to a better future and they are ready to put their minds to it.”
