Foremost Islamic organisation, Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih Society, NASFAT has completed a six-week digital marketing training for youths and Imams, as part of the livelihood initiatives aimed at reducing the unemployment rate of Nigerian youths.
The Chief Missioner of the Society, Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike, said the training which was coordinated by one of Africa’s leading Integrated Marketing Communications Agencies, Wild Fusion Digital Centre, said it is part of the society’s mission to empower the youths.
50 participants comprising Muslims and Christians that took part in the training that was held in Lagos were exposed to various branches of digital marketing such as content marketing, e-mail marketing, social media marketing, SMS marketing, search engine optimisation and web development.
The participants were also exposed to nine certifications in all the areas of focus.
Onike said the training initiative fits perfectly with the livelihood component of the HELD (Health, Education, Livelihood and Da’wah) agenda of NASFAT.
He confirmed that the 50 trained digital marketers will now be undertaking internships in companies to further strengthen their skills.
