In his address, GESCI's Director General Jerome Morrissey congratulated the graduates and thanked both Finland's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the African Union for supporting the ALICT programme.
He reminded GESCI's mission, which is to assist countries in their socio-economic development efforts through widespread integration of ICTs for the development of inclusive knowledge societies.
ALICT diplomas were officially presented by GESCI's Director General, by the Deputy Director of Cabinet of Cote d'Ivoire's Minister of National Education, Raoul Kone, and by ADEA's Executive Secretary, Oley Dibba Wadda.
Implemented by GESCI, the African Digital Schools Initiative (ADSI) aims to improve the learning of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in secondary schools through the professional development of teachers and the use of ICTs.
The ceremony was also the occasion for ADEA and GESCI to sign the renewal of their Memorandum of Understanding, which aims to strengthen their cooperation in order to increase the scope and impact of their programmes and activities.
ADEA's Executive Secretary said, "Recognizing the centrality of technology in the sustainable development of Africa, ADEA has consecrated the third strategic goal of its medium-term plan (2013 to 2017) to the strengthening of ICTs as a means to improve education and training results." She added that ADEA's ICT Task Force had just been entrusted to GESCI.
