Young Africans are connecting, learning, creating jobs, and investing. They are leveraging technology to build relationships, find mentors, share ideas, and start businesses. They are using social media and other digital platforms to better their lives and open doors to new opportunities. They are expanding access to education and healthcare, connecting to global markets, and championing important causes. African youth are also using their creativity and entrepreneurial zeal to unlock innovation, and they are leading the charge for more participatory democracies. From the tech hubs of Nairobi to the digital villages of Ghana, these young Africans are digitally empowering themselves—and their communities—in ways that are unlocking true potential and lasting change.
