Thirty one-year-old Martha Oyanta Daniel and 26-year-old Esther Ayuba graduated from the Coding for Employment program here at the African Center of Excellence, Gombe State University in 2019. After completing the course, Daniel and Ayuba started up an NGO called Eagles Advocacy. The NGO teaches young girls digital skills here at Gombe State, Northern Nigeria, a region often depicted in news reports as restive. Eagles Advocacy has so far put 500 girls in Gombe State through the AfDB CfE digital skills program.
