From online job opportunities to e-commerce ventures, digital skills are the gateway to a world of possibilities.

By equipping youth with these skills, we are not only preparing them for the jobs of today but also enabling them to become the innovators and leaders of tomorrow.

The graduation ceremony was a testament to the dedication of the students and the commitment of all partners involved in the program. As the DigiTruck continues its journey, it is poised to create more opportunities for youth to thrive in the digital era.
