The Beginning of a Brighter Future is Here..
The City of Joburg Educating Digital Intern programme coined C.O.J.E.D.I, is a programme initiated by the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality in January 2015 as part of the foundation phase of developing a smart city. The COJEDI programme focuses on driving innovation & entrepreneurship through critical thinking, preparing students for employment and empowering them to significantly participate in the mainstream of the ICT sector and the burgeoning economy. The City has developed a strong broadband connectivity around the local communities and the only challenge was that there is not enough human resources to maintain the infrastructure, let alone do they possess the necessary skills to effectively sustain the connectivity to be effective. The strategy is to recruit and train 1000 of the City’s brightest young information technology (IT) minds to be part of the digital internship programme. The project supports the Gauteng infrastructure investment programme launched by the Premier focusing in the area of ICT and broadband.
