This is just a recent development in my Tech cycle, volunteering with Techrity and I would love to share it with my community, friends and family.
With our ever busy lives and no-time schedule, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering can be enormously rewarding. Volunteering offers essential help to people in need, beneficial causes, and the community. But the benefits and gains can be even greater for you, the volunteer. The right match can help you to find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career.
Hi, I’m Caleb Ini. Duff. You know, a few years ago, after being pretty miserable and dissatisfied in a job, I started obsessing about what actually makes creativity people more attractive, worthy and indispensable. This has led me to become a tech-savvy & preacher, blogger/writer, ardent traveler who specializes in helping people create value, discover purpose in work and dive smoothly into tech.
Brief on my Tech Trails
Furthermore, in the course of my tech journey, I have met amazing peeps and tech enthusiasts, cutting across the various chains of the tech ecosystem at home and abroad; both physically and virtually.
However, I am here to introduce a community I am part, a community I hold with high regards and appreciable values. This is a community of givers, whose mission is simply a charitable course of genuine impact, social goodness and lastly; paying it forward.
I present to you all, “TECHRITY“. Techrity is aimed at creating equal access to opportunities in tech for Africa and also, engineering a community of givers for technology across Africa and beyond. Techrity was coined from the words – “Technology” and “Charity”. Personally, I always prefer saying “Techrity” is simply superimposing charity in the tech ecosystem”.
As it happens, I came across the organisation in her formative stage and joined because; firstly, the values and missions of the organisation fell inline with mostly the goodwill(s) I practice as an individual. Secondly, as a UN-SDG enthusiasts and advocate, the goals and visions of the organisation were simple, sustainable and live changing. And lastly, this is another opportunity to give myself in service to a cause.
My Personal Pledge
I am Caleb Ini. Duff, the Event & Partnership Lead for Techrity, I love the organisation and in other to continue making a difference in my capacity, I pledge myself in service for the ultimate cause. Although, we are barely a year old, but our impact is growing and far reaching. However, we are shaping lives vis-a-vis remodelling the tech ecosystem in Africa, through our paying it forward and build for social good models.
Volunteering with Techrity –Recent outreach
Evidently, as a non-profit organisation, Techrity, engineers a community of givers, which is aimed at providing resources for young talents in the tech ecosystem in Africa. To commemorate with the International Women’s Day (IWD) which was themed
“Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”
The above theme celebrates the tremendous efforts by women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. To commemorate with the International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrated on the 8th of March, Techrity organized a two-day symposium; comprising an outreach to two (2) secondary schools in Port Harcourt and an online zoom conference themed
“Women in Leadership and Technology“
Importantly, during the outreach, we educated the students on the future of tech and why they should pick up tech skills or careers. Cash prizes were won, kickstart scholarships were awarded to two outstanding students to kickstart their tech career under adequate mentorship and guidance.
