Soul Food ICT College Appeals For Support: As 750 Trained ICT Professionals Graduate
The Soul Food Information Communication Technology (ICT) College has made a passionate appeal to philanthropists, corporate Ghana, non-governmental organizations (NGO) and individuals to come on board and support the college to help in its sustenance and growth.
The appeal was made by the Director of the Soul Food ICT College, Pastor Eddie Letsa, who is also the Founder and General Overseer of the Soul Food Ministries International (SFMI), during the graduation ceremony of seven hundred and fifty (750) trained ICT professionals held in Accra over the weekend.
The Soul Food ICT College was established in 2010 to offer a FEE-FREE computer programme for members of the general public, particularly the youth in an effort to equip them with employable ICT skills which will make them self-employed, or give them the opportunity to be employed in other public and private firms.
The College, since its establishment, has fully trained and graduated over six thousands (6000) ICT professionals, and last Saturday August 2, 2014 graduation marked the 13th graduation and the 26th batch.
Speaking with some journalists at the ceremony, Pastor Eddie Letsa admitted that it was not an easy thing providing free computer tutorials to the many people who have graduated so far, but God has been his motivation and aspiration to work hard.
According to him, as part of his calling by God to become His (God’s) servant to preach the gospel, he realized that it was not enough on his part to see only to the ‘spiritual welfare’ of the people, and that he must also provide them with skills that would enhance their ‘physical welfare’, in terms of job and their standard of living.
‘When God called me to do his work, I asked myself what I could do to make the people live a good life for Him (God).That was when God directed me toprovide the free computer school for the people,’ Pastor Letsa disclosed.
He expressed excitement over how many computer professionals that the college, under his leadership had trained so far and exclaimed: ‘When we started, they thought we couldn’t do it, but today, by the Grace of God, we have attained this milestone. Glory be to God!’
The students are trained for free for a period of four months and courses studied at the Soul Food ICT College include: Computer Hardware, Software, Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 Server, Cisco Certified Network Administration (CCNA), Linux SLED, Novel Netware, SQL, System Analysis and Design.
Pastor Eddie Letsa congratulated the graduates, and charged them to apply the training they have received positively to improve their societies and Ghana as a whole, and called on all people from all religions divides, Christians and Muslims alike, et cetera, who are interested to come for free training in computer studies.
