‘We teach in Hausa to break barriers English brings about in our education system’ – CEO
The Engausa Global Technology Hub believes that knowledge can best be taught in a mother tongue (Hausa) to break the barriers impeded by the English language.
In a statement he made available to journalists some weeks ago, Engineer Ringim said the technology hub had also launched a library to enhance reading among youths.
He said the effort was to enhance lifetime reading culture among youths, adding that the Maisuga Ringim Library has provided both hard and soft copies of reading materials for the apprentice of the technology hub.
With its motto, ‘breaking barriers and bridging gaps’, the firm aims to entrench inclusive technical skills acquisition and entrepreneurial skills among the teaming youths against all language barriers and technical gaps bedevilling human capital development at the grassroots.
Engausa was founded in 2019 and registered in 2022 by Engineer Mustapha Habu Ringim.
