The aim of this workshop was  to train unemployed and student with blogging and coding skills and further empower them with digital security skills and an awareness of blogging on the African Continent and how that ties in with access and development of the internet. Thirty one (31)  participants took part in this workshop that embedded on the World Press Freedom day celebrations and co organized by local partners such as the Editor’s Forum of Namibia, NUST Department of Media Technology as organized by UNESCO.

The participants were trained by 3 local trainers in the field of Media and online business and marketing and one media trainer from Nigeria representing the African region. Participants acknowledge the need to share their Namibian narratives through this mean.

The chapter is looking forward to further this initiative through partnerships with bloggers networks on the continent and continue to avail avenues and directions where bloggers can explore on.
