Millennium Fellowship Project: Flamedge Media Project
Flamedge Media Project is a digital skills training initiative which focuses on equipping students with on-demand skills of the 21st Century, to enable them to survive the digital age.
The project seeks to contribute to reducing digital or technological unemployment rate in Ghana and beyond, by ensuring that beneficiaries put to work the skills they have acquired and nevertheless, to enable them secure jobs that fit their skills and capabilities.
It also seeks to promote United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG 8), which is Decent Work and Economic Growth and United Nations Academic Impact Principle 2 (UNAIP #2), Capacity Building.
A recent restructured plan of the project is to train 150 students in digital skills in 3 years and employ them into Flamedge Media, a registered for-profit social venture.
