A few weeks ago we wrote about Google’s African Certification scholarship program. The initiative is offering 30 000 scholarships and 1 000 grants
for Google’s Associate Android Developer, Mobile Web Specialist and Associate Cloud Engineer certifications.
Now NetOne is partnering with Elevate Trust to fund 75 local developers who register for the scholarship program. The lucky 75 will get internet access, mentorship and access to computers.
NetOne & Elevate Trust will use innovation hubs at universities to provide computers, food and accomodation to those who need it.
Over the last few months, NetOne has been making some interesting strides and changing their culture. The mobile network appears to be attempting to support entrepreneurs. They hosted an interesting hackathon last year, and another one a few weeks ago at ZITF. They also recently sat down with content creators and entrepreneurs in an attempt to solve the recent crisis that is the cost of mobile data.
With the support they are offering during the certification, it’s clear that this is not just a trend but something the mobile network will continue to do…
