The Computer Village Hub (CVhub) on Thursday said it has trained about 74 street hawkers, mostly in software on the digital economy.
The Chief Executive Officer, CVhub, Mr Austin Agbakor, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Agbakor said that the training was to empower the street hawkers on how to run or sell their software online, secure and configure a network.
According to him, most of the street hawkers dealing with software were not educated and it is an opportunity to educate them on the digital economy and how to grow their business.
”The training was for people in computer village and those whose work was related to ICT.
”It is also to help people move their business as well as my desire for giving back to society; because I started from the street.
”After the training, the street hawkers should be able to create programmes that will solve problems and possibly create employment,” he said.
NAN reports that the training was on Software programming, Digital marketing, website development and cybersecurity, among others.
