As part of the Union of African Journalists programme in Cairo, journalists attending the course visited several media organisations in the city.
Among them was the Smart Village, home to various technological companies in the country.
The Information Technology Institute was formed in 1993 and has six main branches with two based in Cairo.
The institute specialises in training people to become tech savvy.
“We were reached out to by different countries in Africa to contribute in training their students. We want our student to work after they finish their training and know the technology trends of markets that are not mature yet,” said Fatma Alashmawi, a business development executive at the institute.
