    ITI Launches ‘Freelancing and Remote Work Initiative’

    Cairo, 22 May 2020

    The Information Technology Institute (ITI) has launched the “Freelancing and Remote Work Initiative” that aims to train young people on freelancing and remote work skills, and make available decent income opportunities, in collaboration with a number of freelancing platforms.

    This comes within the framework of the strategy of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) for contributing to implementing the State’s plan for building the Egyptian citizen. It also comes in light of the directives of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology Amr Talaat, pertaining to creating initiatives for developing the youth’s digital skills and helping them acquire freelancing skills.

    The initiative aims to provide work opportunities to all segments of young people, even those with no experience. It focuses on three pillars, the first of which is distance training. This includes providing training courses and tracks in the most required technological skills in the labor market, through MCIT and its affiliates’ e-portals.

    This is in addition to providing digital training on freelancing skills, thus helping beginners take the first step in this field. The training programs are provided in Arabic, as well as in the sign language to help empower the persons with disabilities (PwDs) and build an inclusive society of all its segments.

    The second pillar is supervising and mentoring. This includes involving experts in this field to share experience and advice with those who are new to the idea and those interested in leveraging different freelancing platforms, through weekly virtual meeting and e-sessions.

    The third pillar is represented in providing privileges and different job opportunities, through cooperating with a number of freelancing platforms, such as Hsoub, and remote recruitment firms. This targets providing a wide range of forms of work, either in-house or remotely, with international companies.

    The initiative, through its website, showcases success stories of young people who managed to take promising steps in this field. It is worth mentioning that 30,000 young people started their training on freelancing skills on Mahara-Tech platform, while 6,000 others are receiving the same training content in the sign language. The initiative has received more than 2,500 applications so far.
