ETDA aims to have more than double the number of Generation 2 EDC Trainers trained over the previous year. Following the success of the EDC project Trainer Batch 1 with 23 trainers in 2022, EDC 2023 anticipates that at least 50 more persons will be recruited.

Participants will be mentored to gain skills and knowledge in the “EDC Trainer Training Batch 2” which lasts two days and will be filled with supporting documentation and digital competence.

Its purpose is to help spread information to a larger target audience of different genders and ages, totalling over 1,500 people around the country.
