Bushra Ghaniam, a young female joined YLDF to benefit from Youth in Technology program, has proved sufficient level of improvement during the program and later on recruited by YLDF as websites coordinator. She was offered by YLDF to join one of the entrepreneurship skills training which gave her better sight on how to start business. Interestingly, her proposed business idea in the training ranked first. This encouraged her to consider opening her own ICT business and actually, she has started.
Such story was a"Aha" to YLDF and attract attention to ICT females not as employees but as entrepreneurs. Thus, YLDF decided to join the two experiences that have accumulated from both Youth in Technology Program and Khadija Program.
