Participants of the Young Professional Program undergo a rigorous selection process before embarking

the company’s digital transformation journey and grow my career,” said Ahmed Harby.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH with the aim to jointly create 450 jobs for highly-qualified personnel in the IT sector in ten African countries over the course of three years. The cooperation project is part of the special initiative “Training and Job Creation” and the
