Accra, Nov. 27, GNA- A three-year computer training programme for graduates selected from various Senior Secondary Schools (SSS) and staff from organizations and institutions would be given free training in computer software, scheduled to take off in July next year.
Mr Michael Sowah, Managing Director of Micro Channel Systems, an organization engaged in long term contracts with schools and organization in Information Technology (IT) training announced this at graduation ceremony for 34 persons who had successfully completed training in the organization.
He said his organization has plans for various orphanages, where computer workshops would be organized for kids at such places with the aim of making every literate person computer literate by 2010, especially literate persons within the La Dadekotopon constituency.
