The Oman Women’s Association in Muscat (OWAM) has partnered with Microsoft to train females in the country.

Fifteen women are celebrating the completion of Microsoft’s Unlimited Potential (UP) curriculum, and will now pass on their IT skills to at least 750 members of  OWAM in the three cities of Salalah, Buraimi and Muscat.

New Horizon Computer Learning Centre (NHCLC), a Microsoft certified partner, provided the training, while Microsoft donated its UP curriculum and trainers, as well as US$25,000 and US$27,000 worth of software.

Plans are in place to expand the programme to the Sultanate’s remaining 42 women’s associations.
