The International Center for Energy, Environment and Development with funding from the European Commission has commenced the training of 24 youths out of the targeted 140 on solar installation, maintenance and marketing. This is part of the MAIDA project, designed to strengthen resilience in six LGAs affected by the insurgency in Borno State. The exercise which is being conducted at the State Vocational Training Center Maiduguri, commenced with trainees from Jere Local Government of Borno State.
Solar energy has been, and continues to be, a male-dominated field, however, the trend will soon change in Borno State. Out of the initial 24 trainees, 5 are determined women, who have committed to solar technology business. This training teaches participants what the solar energy field has to offer them, with information and advice on career options, industry trends and much more. Find below pictures from the event
