Why Digital Literacy Is A Priority In Africa (part 1)

We used to think of the three R’s—reading, writing, and arithmetic—as the foundational skills in today’s education systems. Is it time to add digital to that list?

According to the Digital Skills in Sub-Saharan Africa report published by IFC, over 200 million jobs will require digital skills by 2030 in Sub Saharan Africa.

This translates into an opportunity estimated at $130 billion to provide digital skills through a combination of business-to-consumer, business-to-business, and business-to-government training services.

A consultant for TACTIS, a French consultancy firm, with the support of Smart Africa and the French Development Agency, based in Kigali, Rwanda, Liana Rakotondramboa, and a Technology Education Entrepreneur whose company Utiva has the biggest tech learning platform in Sub-Saharan Africa, Eyitayo Ogunmola, discuss why Africa must make giant moves towards digital literacy.
