I am pleased to announce to you that application for the Lagos 'Microsoft NGO Connection Day' is now open.
The Microsoft NGO Connection Day organized by Microsoft Anglophone West Africa and Paradigm Initiative Nigeria is an ICT training, networking and information-sharing event for non-profit organizations. This event which held in North Central Nigeria (Abuja 2011), South West (Lagos 2012), South-South (Calabar) in 2013, will be once again holding in LAGOS Nigeria on May 14th, 2014.
The NGO space is changing as everything else. NGOs need to be equipped with the applicable technologies required to make their work effective and relevant to the 21st century. Microsoft NGO Connection Day provides free training and support to NGOs based on the Digital Literacy Standard Curriculum. Apart from productivity tools, the curriculum covers Internet & Web, mostly focusing on connecting people, information and resources; and also Computer Security and Privacy. We also train in Digital Lifestyles, introducing participants to new digital technologies and how this is creating new and relevant opportunities and shaping their world – (of stakeholders, partners, sponsors, beneficiaries, donors, government, etc)
The venue of this event and draft agenda would be sent to selected applicants upon confirmation of attendance. The event is primarily for non-profits, and only lunch and course materials will be taken care of; travel costs will not be reimbursed.
