Meta, the parent company for WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram, on Monday said it has launched a digital non-profit training programme for 1,500 NGO personnel across Anglophone West Africa.

Meta, in a statement, said the digital capacity-building programme was aimed at supporting the non-profit and social impact sector across West Africa.

Head of Public Policy for Anglophone West Africa at Meta, Adaora Ikenze said: “We know the value of digital skills and Meta is committed to helping non-profits and social enterprises across Nigeria acquire these skills.

Ikenze said the company would provide them with information to increase their overall digital awareness.
