Description

FITI is the outgrowth of the vision of its founder.

He concluded that there existed a paucity of training in areas such as systems administration/management and maintenance, second, that there existed the potential for job creation through promoting the hiring of information technology (IT) professionals trained in institutions in-country, and finally, that information technology possessed considerable potential as a tool for development.
