Yowhana and Biniam are both from Eritrea and are Tigrinya speakers. Biniam has been able to support Yowhana’s IT learning by teaching her and using their shared language. This is a fantastic achievement for both of them. Yowhana started with the project as a total beginner in terms of IT. Biniam has worked very hard with her and is a great teacher. Yowhanas success reflects both their hard work.
