Zongovation Hub – a non-governmental organisation (NGO) that provides skills training in Information Communication Technology (ICT) for the youth, has received financial support from Allied Consortiums, a South African-based civil engineering company with branches in Ghana.
Zongovation Hub, on Monday, received a cash donation of GH¢30,000 from Allied Consortiums to help in the execution of their training activities for the youth in the country.
Zongovation, an NGO formed in 2018, has over the years trained over 500 young men and women in website development, mobile app development, digitised media, coding, data management and other ICT-related activities.
Benjamin Kofi Quashie, Group Chairman of Allied Consortiums, said they were motivated to support the Hub because they understand their vision and mission. He said the gesture was also part of their efforts to support social development in the country, hence, the decision to provide financial support to the Hub to help in the execution of their activities.
Mr. Quashie said they would continue to support the activities of the Hub in future endeavours, having opened a branch in Ghana.
Isaac Kwame Penni, Chief Executive Officer of Allied Consortiums, commended the Hub for the support they have given to the youth of the country. He added that plans were in place for further support for them – a way of curbing social vices in the country.
Nonkazimulo Quashie – Administrative Director of Allied Consortiums, who presented the cheque to the NGO urged the youth to take advantage of the training opportunities at the Hub to develop their skills. This is because the world is now driven by ICT, and failure to make use of the opportunity would be to their disadvantage.
Alhassan Khalid, Director of Finance and Administration, expressed appreciation to Allied Consortiums for supporting his outfit. According to Mr. Khalid, they could have supported more young people to acquire ICT skills, but were constrained by financial resources, hence, the support had come at a perfect time. He said the funds would be put to judicious use as they seek to train more young men and women to be financially independent.
Allied Consortium operates in the area of civil engineering, construction, real estate, mining, ICT services, and oil and gas.
