Silatech has recently announced Cisco technologies to be its new Anchor Technology Partner for the development of an Invitational Technology Platform, which will deliver Silatech services and solutions to the youth across the Middle East and Northern Africa.
This initiative is aimed at providing skills, job opportunities and empowering youths in Middle East and Northern Africa.According to softepedia "Business development services, as well as training, will be offered to small- and medium-size entrepreneurs, which will also be provided with financial services and access to markets and supply chains. The youth in the Middle East and Northern Africa will receive assistance with skill development and job placement services."
Now that's something!Providing African youths with not only the technical know how ,but also capital,opportunity and a market is a venture that will sustain the productivity of many African youths who are already in a disadvantaged position in these global economic recession era!
Silatech was founded by HH Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar and his wife HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned with the intent of meeting the urgent need to generate new jobs and opportunities for young people with emphasis in the Arabic region. However this intent has changed with a global focus beginning with Africa. I am certain that this is exciting news for many youths especially in the North African region.We need more of such initiatives.
