To achieve its digital ambition, Chad, like most African countries, needs a qualified workforce. For that purpose, the country is actively forging partnerships to secure a skilled workforce, ensuring that its youth gain access to essential digital skills.

Simplon Africa, a social enterprise that provides training in digital professions, and WenakLabs, a tech hub in Chad, signed a partnership agreement in N'Djamena on Thursday, November 16.

One of the goals of this collaboration is to give the Chadian youth access to high-quality training in digital professions, improving their employability.  

"This partnership shows a strong dedication to developing digital skills in Chad. By working together and sharing our expertise, WenakLabs and Simplon Africa want to create top-notch training courses, giving learners exceptional learning opportunities," said the Chadian hub.

Under the agreement, Simplon Africa will create the teaching content and provide learners access to its online training platform. On the other hand, WenakLabs will give access to its resources and training materials to support both face-to-face and online learning.

This collaboration will result in the launch of a campus in the next few months, offering both paid online and face-to-face training courses to its main targets: students, entrepreneurs, and professionals.

This new collaboration follows a previous partnership that led to the Tech4Tchad program in 2021. Funded by France, Simplon, and several partners, including WenakLab, Tech4Tchad has trained 150 young people in the digital field so far.
