Hugo ML Brings Digital Job Training To Ghana With Local Tech Partnership

The Future-of-Work is developing and Hugo ML is creating a place for West Africans. With the current Coronavirus outbreak, increased demand for remote work has put a greater spotlight on the immediate need for digital fluency in the region.

Hugo ML is now teaming up with Accra-based Digipay Ghana Limited to escalate the number of Ghanaians accessing online work. For the last three years, Hugo ML has been equipping current university graduates and stay-at-home mothers with the training and tools needed to join the multi-billion dollar digital economy. Located in Lagos, Nigeria, the company has already trained and placed over 250 Machine Learning annotators in West Africa.

Mr Orinola Gbadebo-Smith, Co-founder and CEO of Hugo ML said, “There’s an ever-growing subset of online jobs available to people who have the tools and skills to do good work online. This partnership will allow us to train more talented Ghanaians and equip them with the technical job experiences that they need to be competitive in the fast-growing online economy.”
