Celeberating Hargabits Batch two achievement

Today we celebrated the achievement of HargaBits academy batch two,  the completion of the first two courses ( Get connected and Digital garage) . The Hargabits Academy uses ICT multimedia creatively to improve the lives of less privileged youth from the non-formal settlement co-founded by Shaqodoon Organization in partnership with Oxfam Novib and Butterfly Work in July 2016. Hargabits is established in sole purpose of reducing unemployment particularly less privileged youth in Somaliland especially in Hargeisa.

The graduation saw 64 students, majority being girls. The students are now equipped and empowered with diplomas. The students now have ambitions to excel in life and feel the confidence to work out there. At the graduation, they have proved to have the necessary skills and feel that it is now the right time to take their lives to the next level.
