eHealth Africa on Tuesday trained Kano journalists on the basics of website design
and creation as part of its effort to enhance their digital skills for news dissemination.

The training, according to Jamil Galadanci, eHA Academy Technical lead, was part of the eHA Academy initiatives aimed to build the capacity of young people in the utilization of digital tools to solve local problems and promote digital solutions.

”With over a decade of experience in developing and deploying digital solutions across the continent, eHA established the eHA Academy, a training arm that has been at the forefront of equipping individuals with software development skills for at least four years now,” Galadanci told the journalists during the opening of the one day training.

He said: “The eHA Academy is a nine-month program with two phases: three months of intensive in-class live sessions followed by a six-months internship. Through a combination of engaging live sessions, videos, challenging
assignments, and practical projects, we train students to acquire both theoretical knowledge and real-world experience, setting them on the path to success.”

He further emphasized the impact of the eHA Academy as, “The Academy has so far received 3057 applications across Africa since inception”.

He announced that the application for the
next cohort kicks off in July 2023, and ”we call on media colleagues and the general
public to apply via and participate in this impactful

The hybrid training led by eHA Academy’s experienced in-house trainers in website
creation and design, was conducted at the eHealth Africa’s Headquarters in Kano
with other participants across Nigeria participating via online platforms.

The training, which was largely practical, put participants through the step by step
process of creating and designing simple websites.
