The African Democratic Dreams Project popularly known as Dream Project for Africa (DPA) has launched an online training for its volunteers in preparation for the ESHBNC Phase III coming up in Awka, Anambra State in March 2016. This is the second launch of the organization’s online training initiative. The training is specially designed to bridge the geographical gap among DPA’s audience spread around the globe.
ESHBNC III is being implemented in partnership with the University of Nnamdi Azikiwe arm of Junior Chamber International.
In a statement shared with the ESHBNC III partners and volunteers, Mrs. Adejumoke Adedeji, DPA’s Leadership and Training Manager, explained that volunteers would be trained in the areas of Leadership, Body Language and Volunteerism. “We want to bring out the leaders in our volunteers”, she said. Mrs. Adenike Fagbemi, the Director of Media and Events for the organization also projected that the online training initiative would give the opportunity to many African youths to participate in leadership activities, without any form of discrimination or social barriers.
“One of the challenges of deploying such initiative is the constrained access of majority of Africans to reliable internet access”, said Nelson, Oluwabukola Michael, CEO of Dream Project for Africa. Even where people get access to manageable internet access, it is highly expensive to access video training materials, therefore, “we still deploy hybrid training – using a combination of face-to-face, SMS and online tactics to reach our global audiences.”
Although the training videos are publicly accessible at
, the quiz which would traditionally be administered after the online video training is complete would only be accessible to registered members. DPA also allows free membership registration on its site at the link
