Click-On Kaduna in Partnership with Digital Naija workshops
The Click-On Kaduna in Partnership with Digital Naija workshops occurred between July 10-12, 2018 at Kaduna State University. The objective of the workshop was to connect digitally-skilled youths with elancing (online freelancing) opportunities. Working independently as a freelancer allows individuals freedom to choose the type of work based on interests and the flexibility to work anywhere. Women, especially, benefit from these arrangements, providing flexibility and balance as they juggle family and work.
Successful freelancers from Upwork and representatives from Efiko, Jolancer, Asuqu, and Motionwares provided hands-on training and insight on how to navigate elancing platforms. Over 900 Northern Nigerian youths participated in this three-day program, out of which, the 150 best Upwork profiles participated in an Upwork pilot, completed in October 2018.
