EducationRegionsTop StoriesWest Africa

Smart Africa’s capacity building arm, the Smart Africa Digital Academy (SADA) in partnership with Ghana’s Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation have launched a national digital academy in the West African state, marking the official kick off of in-country implementation of the initiative.

The agreement is contained within a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the Smart Africa Alliance and the Ghana’s Ministry Communications and Digitalisation. The launch in Ghana follows the roll out of national digital academies of SADA that took place in the Republic of Congo in February and in Rwanda in March.

As a pan-African dynamic learning ecosystem, SADA aims to improve digital skills qualifications, employability, and meet the emerging talent needs of African citizens.

Smart Africa and the Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation will continue to collaborate with the key stakeholders to successfully execute the defined priority initiatives under the SADA Ghana framework.

Lacina Koné, Director General and CEO, Smart Africa, said: “Ghana is one of the most active countries of the Smart Africa alliance and has been instrumental in advancing digital skills of its citizens. We are pleased to contribute positively to the nation capacity building through the launch of SADA in Ghana.”
