DIGIPALS is a unique School-based ICT club initiated by Digital Peers International (DPI) in 2007. The Club is coming at the heels of a successful annual youth ICT camp, DIGITEST, and we at DPI want the club established in your school, with the aim of helping all students gain background knowledge that would spur on their interest in growing a better environment through ICT.
Studies show that students today are at better advantage because they live in this 21st century, a time when it is almost impossible to learn, communicate, teach, and transact without the use of ICT, but they could as well be at risk if they are not earlier informed on how productive life can be when they build careers in or around ICT, and its benefits in National development.
DIGIPALS club will hereby provide a platform for young people in Nigeria to learn more about the information society and to develop “foundational” skills in ICT, hence contributing to National development.
The essence of building DIGIPALS is to gather youths who will make up their minds to succeed, and through them, Nigeria will get into development. Development comes by thinking, by hard work, by determination.
The goal is that at the end of the School academic year, every student who is a member of DIGIPALS club would have at least been better informed on the importance of ICT, and must have gained the foundational knowledge that would spur on their interest in growing a better environment through ICT.
The main objectives include;
